CapitalRio d'Australente


The Republic of Australente is a huge, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 678 million Australenteans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rio d'Australente. The average income tax rate is 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Australentean economy, worth 21.0 trillion Unidas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,020 Unidas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and many marriages go virtually unconsummated. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Australente's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Australente is ranked 150,134th in the world and 7,734th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.78 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
