Augustin Proxy

Population11.571 billion

LeaderDomeric Asten


The Hinterlands of Augustin Proxy is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Domeric Asten with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.571 billion Augustins are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Proxima. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Augustin economy, worth a remarkable 3,096 trillion senses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 267,565 senses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,336,832 per year while the poor average 4,703, a ratio of 496 to 1.

Open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, aides are afraid to ask if Domeric Asten wants a cup of tea or coffee, and destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare senses. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Augustin Proxy's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Augustin Proxy is ranked 204,827th in the world and 237th in Cape of Good Hope for Most Politically Free, scoring 19.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
