The United States of Greater of Austria-Carantania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Otto I with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.386 billion Austrians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Austrian economy, worth 631 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 144,048 Kroner, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 557,041 per year while the poor average 25,560, a ratio of 21.8 to 1.

Passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", just as students finish their homework it's time for school, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. 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 148,702nd in the world and 282nd in Enadia for Most Extreme, scoring 12.31 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
