Vancouver Straits

CurrencyAustralian Dollar AUD$

The Commonwealth of Australia of Vancouver Straits is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Paul Ackerman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.16 billion Australians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Australian economy, worth 210 trillion Australian Dollar AUD$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 97,472 Australian Dollar AUD$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists are forbidden to enter Native Australian lands, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vancouver Straits's national animal is the Kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secular.

Vancouver Straits is ranked 169,147th in the world and 96th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Pacifist, with 37.22 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
