LeaderArchduke Maximilian III


The Electoral Archduchy of Wiener-Neustadt is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Archduke Maximilian III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.86 billion Wiener-Neustadters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Innsbruck. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wiener-Neustadtean economy, worth a remarkable 1,274 trillion thalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 262,188 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, the nation's beloved 'good-natured doormat' is inundated by begging letters, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Innsbruck, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime is totally unknown. Wiener-Neustadt's national animal is the Reichsadler, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Wiener-Neustadt is ranked 1,475th in the world and 36th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 202.3 quips per hour.
