The Valcinian Empire of Austrovik-Germania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Louis XVII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.644 billion Austrenyans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Austrenese economy, worth 874 trillion Liniums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,466 Liniums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, school uniforms are compulsory, veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, and war vets look after war animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austrovik-Germania's national animal is the White Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Austrovik-Germania is ranked 175,412th in the world and 78th in New World Union for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
