The Protectorate of Austratus Imperium is a huge, safe nation, notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 354 million Austratans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.8%.

The all-consuming Austratus Imperium economy, worth 37.7 trillion Gold Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 106,454 Gold Crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 531,477 per year while the poor average 12,004, a ratio of 44.3 to 1.

Shouting contests are an important part of government job interviews, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, and a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austratus Imperium's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Austratus Imperium is ranked 78,464th in the world and 3,628th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,253.53 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
