The Empire of Patria Augusta is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Livius with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.059 billion Augustrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lux Gloria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Patria Augustan economy, worth a remarkable 3,755 trillion Aureuses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 220,171 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patria Augusta's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Patria Augusta is ranked 207,485th in the world and 445th in NationStates for Most Avoided, scoring 0.21 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
