The Federal Republic of New Austra is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Sarah Drant with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.895 billion New Austrans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orangeville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.0%.

The frighteningly efficient New Austran economy, worth a remarkable 1,722 trillion Austra Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 249,841 Austra Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, and military training in New Austra emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Austra's national animal is the Orca Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

New Austra is ranked 97,255th in the world and 4,525th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 48.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
