|Leader||Maximilian IV Statski|
The Holy Empire of United Fire of Austren Statia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Maximilian IV Statski with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.75 billion Austrenstatiani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buriergarde. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Austrenstatiane economy, worth 217 trillion Yants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 124,197 Yants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power, practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no", Austrenstatiani believe manners maketh the leader, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austren Statia's national animal is the Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Haiobzeitism.
