The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine

Population11.539 billion

LeaderEmperor Karl von Habsburg-Lorraine


The Constitutional Monarchy of The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Karl von Habsburg-Lorraine with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.539 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Danubian economy, worth a remarkable 2,790 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 241,867 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, and nine out of ten citizens of The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. 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.

The Workers Union of Habsburg-Lorraine is ranked 1,161st in the world and 28th in The Communist Bloc for Smartest Citizens, with 220.18 quips per hour.
