The Holy Empire of Autodalia is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, fear of technology, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 396 million Autodalians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murder Town. The average income tax rate is 47.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Autodalian economy, worth 39.2 trillion Handies 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. 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 98,873 Handies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Autodalia's national animal is the Freak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Autodalia is ranked 6,570th in the world and 3rd in Hartfelden for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 80.08 Bank.
