The Grand Republic of Greater Autenheim is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Grand General President Hans Håkon with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 955 million Autens are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ottograd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.5%.

The powerhouse Greater Autenheimian economy, worth 98.4 trillion Auten Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 103,067 Auten Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 388,099 per year while the poor average 19,086, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

Almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, criminals are really screwed, and only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Grand General President Hans Håkon on Greater Autenheim's coulrophobia epidemic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Autenheim's national animal is the Northern Elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greater Autenheim is ranked 138,460th in the world and 47th in Northern Utopia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 684.87 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
