Austro-Bavarian States

Population522 million



The Unlikely Alt-History of Austro-Bavarian States is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 522 million Danubians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrassil. The average income tax rate is 58.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danubian economy, worth 63.9 trillion Brains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,412 Brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, foreign leaders who don't applaud Leader's speeches are regarded as enemies of Austro-Bavarian States, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Bats'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austro-Bavarian States's national animal is the Bats, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Austro-Bavarian States is ranked 56,486th in the world and 2,640th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 58.18 Effective Tax Rate.
