LeaderPresident Joseph Brandt


The Republic of Osterreich und Ungarn is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Joseph Brandt with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.995 billion Österreichers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruhmstadt. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Österreichisch economy, worth 673 trillion Kroner a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,857 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, government projects are full of waste, and the monarchy goes down the drain with a royal flush. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osterreich und Ungarn's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Osterreich und Ungarn is ranked 205,085th in the world and 8,457th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -107.12 on the Hayek Index.
