The Republic of Austurasia is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 145 million Austurasians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 25.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Austurasian economy, worth 8.37 trillion Guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,725 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The art of conversation has been rediscovered, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austurasia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
