The Grand Holy Australian Empire

Population29 million

The Holy Empire of The Grand Holy Australian Empire is a small, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, triple-decker prams, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 29 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.9%.

The strong Grand Holy Australian Empirean economy, worth 1.80 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 62,218 Crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 211,289 per year while the poor average 13,516, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, women across the country are tying the knot, government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Leader, and tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian. 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 11,705th in the world and 1st in The Grand Holy Australian Empire for Most Extreme, scoring 36.66 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
