The Most Capitalist Empire of 2nd Austro-Hungry is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by HIH Emperor Franz Jovahn XXI with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.57 billion Austrians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 76.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Austrian economy, worth 631 trillion Imperials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,946 Imperials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The credibility of anti-government demagogues is undermined by government claims that they smell like poo, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, superstitious folk make gestures to ward off evil whenever they see a refrigeration unit, 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 well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 2nd Austro-Hungry's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

2nd Austro-Hungry is ranked 207,685th in the world and 5th in Alliance of European Monarchies for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -133.06 on the Hayek Index.
