The Holy Empire of The Grand Holy Australian Empire is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 387 million Australians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adelaide. The average income tax rate is 45.0%.

The thriving Grand Holy Australian Empirean economy, worth 32.8 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 84,822 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and it's always rabbit season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grand Holy Australian Empire's national animal is the Piping Shrike, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Grand Holy Australian Empire is ranked 162,218th in the world and 1st in The Grand Holy Australian Empire for Smartest Citizens, with 3.99 Quips Per Hour.
