The Grand Concordat of Austrovik-Germania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andrei Anthrax with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.272 billion Concordians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antares Prime. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Concordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,020 trillion Entrenka Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,085 Entrenka Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austrovik-Germania's national animal is the None, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Austrovik-Germania is ranked 18,150th in the world and 19th in New World Union for Highest Economic Output, with 1,020 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
