The Aursian Puppet of AwSaF is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Aursia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.588 billion AwSaFians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Industry and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Awsaposa. The average income tax rate is 33.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient AwSaFian economy, worth 47.3 trillion Awsafens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 29,788 Awsafens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AwSaF's national animal is the Bilai, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.
