CurrencyTirastralic Decimal Pound

The TÝrastrāl Commonwealth of Syndic Australia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Donovan MacGowan with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.867 billion Týrastrāleč are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathārcomdāl. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Týrastrālič economy, worth 556 trillion Tirastralic Decimal Pounds 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 143,782 Tirastralic Decimal Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, Prime Minister Donovan MacGowan's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Syndic Australia's national animal is the Kangaroo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Syndic Australia is ranked 4,827th in the world and 30th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,997.13 on the Edu-tellignce« Test Score.
