The Republic of Australente is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alfonso Ramirez with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.784 billion 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rio d'Australente. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Australentean economy, worth 65.4 trillion Unidas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,634 Unidas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Australente, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, the nation's biggest export is stupidity, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. 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, and its national religion is Atheism.

Australente is ranked 199,725th in the world and 446th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -7.75 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
