The The United Socialist States of Commune of Australasia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Peoples Council with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.214 billion Australasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Australasian economy, worth 148 trillion Australasian pounds 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 122,384 Australasian pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Commune of Australasia after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commune of Australasia's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Commune of Australasia is ranked 89,253rd in the world and 978th in the Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 148 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
