The Crowned State of Austrovik-Germania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by First Minister Frederick von Hersmann with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.838 billion Austroviks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hortendorf. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Austrovik economy, worth 694 trillion Rijksmarkes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 119,040 Rijksmarkes, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The question of 'what is First Minister Frederick von Hersmann's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, and student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austrovik-Germania's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Austrovik-Germania is ranked 129,050th in the world and 134th in The Western Isles for Most Income Equality, scoring 14.69 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
