The Oppressed Peoples of Austrulasia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 312 million Austrulasians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sidor City. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Austrulasian economy, worth 21.8 trillion rubies a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,731 rubies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urbanites battle to the death for penthouse apartments, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, the typical murderer weighs 150kg and has hairy arms, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austrulasia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Austrulasia is ranked 163,890th in the world and 30th in United Alliance for Highest Economic Output, with 21.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
