The Federal Republic of Ausztra is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 1.217 billion Ausztrans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 17.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ausztran economy, worth 56.6 trillion Noneuropean Kronees a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,522 Noneuropean Kronees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ausztra's national animal is the double-headed eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Ausztra is ranked 207,897th in the world and 33rd in Noneuropean Union for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 47.78 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
