The Protectorate of Das Auto is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 11.257 billion Parhasques 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Das Autoan economy, worth 334 trillion Parhean Tongboes 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 dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 29,744 Parhean Tongboes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, a nation-wide cull of Parhean Rhinoceross is in effect, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Das Auto's national animal is the Parhean Rhinoceros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
