The Federal Republic of New Austra is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Sarah Drant with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.491 billion New Austrans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orangeville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Austran economy, worth a remarkable 1,541 trillion Austra Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 237,516 Austra Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 776,376 per year while the poor average 54,619, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

The nation's gigantic air force is both respected and feared, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Austra's national animal is the Orca Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

New Austra is ranked 154,574th in the world and 7,871st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14.18 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
