The Republic of Austria of Molbovia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jörg Haider with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The humorless population of 9.549 billion Austrians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Molbovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,482 trillion Hussaks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 155,212 Hussaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Molbovia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Molbovia's national animal is the Tiger Ant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholic.

Molbovia is ranked 102,935th in the world and 139th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 879.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
