The People's Republic of Ausknpreus is a huge, safe nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 366 million Ausknpreusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gergrafpreus. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Ausknpreusian economy, worth 10.8 trillion Iron Rectangles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 29,408 Iron Rectangles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ausknpreus's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ausknpreus is ranked 184,161st in the world and 527th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Developed, scoring 48.19 on the Human Development Index.
