The Federal Republic of New Austra is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Tandra Liead with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.201 billion New Austrans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 34.2%.

The frighteningly efficient New Austran economy, worth a remarkable 1,867 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 259,360 Austra Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, Eckie-Ecola has declared that their soda poop is The Real Thing, and bilingual New Austrans are viewed with suspicion. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 5,885th in the world and 354th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.13 on the Human Development Index.
