Patria Augusta

Population21.402 billion

CapitalLux Gloria


The Empire of Patria Augusta is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Livius with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 21.402 billion Augustrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 4,696 trillion Aureuses a year, is highly 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 219,447 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Lux Gloria" t-shirts, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. 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 268,107th in the world and 866th in NationStates for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -36.89 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
