The United States of Greater of Austria-Carantania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Otto I with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.479 billion Austrians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Austrian economy, worth 349 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 141,063 Kroner, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 626,359 per year while the poor average 19,806, a ratio of 31.6 to 1.

A girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austria-Carantania's national animal is the Black Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Austria-Carantania is ranked 25,052nd in the world and 10th in Despotic Europe for Most Developed, scoring 70.55 on the Human Development Index.
