The Commonwealth of Australia of Vancouver Straits is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Gorton with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.842 billion Australians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Australian economy, worth 884 trillion Australian Dollar AUD$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,035 Australian Dollar AUD$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vancouver Straits's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular.

Vancouver Straits is ranked 265,497th in the world and 319th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Avoided, scoring 1.11 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
