The Not Not Republic of Not Austria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade Meow with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.689 billion Not Austrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Not Vienna. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Not Austrian economy, worth 120 trillion Not Euros 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 71,116 Not Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Not Austria's national animal is the Not Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Not Austria is ranked 99,197th in the world and 3,613th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 69.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
