The Commonwealth of Australia of Vancouver Straits is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Stanley Bruce with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.549 billion Australians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken 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 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Australian economy, worth 549 trillion Australian Pound AUP£s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 99,023 Australian Pound AUP£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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secular.
