The Democratic Republic of Ayaupia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 696 million Ayaupians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cayoo. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Ayaupian economy, worth 18.1 trillion Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,025 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, and commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ayaupia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
