Patria Augusta

Population17.654 billion

CapitalLux Gloria


The Empire of Patria Augusta is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Livius with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.654 billion Augustrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lux Gloria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Patria Augustan economy, worth a remarkable 3,880 trillion Aureuses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 219,792 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, Livius spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patria Augusta's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Patria Augusta is ranked 676th in the world and 4th in NationStates for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 13,234.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
