The Federal Republic of Aussiestan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 494 million Aussiestanis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.7%.

The Aussiestanian economy, worth 28.1 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,842 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aussiestan's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aussiestan is ranked 63,659th in the world and 3,022nd in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 93.84 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
