Patria Augusta

Population18.237 billion

CapitalLux Gloria


The Empire of Patria Augusta is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Livius with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.237 billion Augustrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lux Gloria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Patria Augustan economy, worth a remarkable 3,987 trillion Aureuses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 218,654 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patria Augusta's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Patria Augusta is ranked 357th in the world and 3rd in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 31,733.7 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
