The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine

Population7.875 billion

LeaderEmperor Karl von Habsburg-Lorraine


The The Constitutional Empire of The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Karl von Habsburg-Lorraine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.875 billion Danubians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Danubian economy, worth a remarkable 1,773 trillion Reichsmarks 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 major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,260 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, Danubian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime is totally unknown. The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine is ranked 25,852nd in the world and 51st in The Communist Bloc for Rudest Citizens, with 94.63 Insults Per Minute.
