The Socialist Republic of Autochthonia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 724 million Autochthonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metallica Prime. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Autochthonian economy, worth 75.3 trillion Standard Currency Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 104,026 Standard Currency Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chickens roam the streets freely, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, the aims of top-secret Autochthonian science projects revolve around designing the perfect robot woman, and the deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Autochthonia's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Autochthonia is ranked 26,989th in the world and 4th in The Mystical Alliance for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 70.97 Effective Tax Rate.
