The Republic of Enlightened Australasia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Owl with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 1.145 billion Australasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canberra. The average income tax rate is 53.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Australasian economy, worth 106 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,761 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Australasians any less frightened, political cartoons depicting The Owl's face on a flying fox's buttocks are selling like hotcakes, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Enlightened Australasia's national animal is the flying fox, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
