The Federation of New Austavia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 438 million New Austavians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austgard City. The average income tax rate is 14.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Austavian economy, worth 23.6 trillion Kricks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,994 Kricks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The weather is the nation's most risqué topic of conversation, workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Austavia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Austavia is ranked 43,688th in the world and 315th in Europe for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,243.07 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
