Austro-Bavarian States

Population545 million



The Unlikely Alt-History of Austro-Bavarian States is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 545 million Danubians 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 government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrassil. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danubian economy, worth 67.8 trillion Brains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,481 Brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Austro-Bavarian States's national animal is the Bats, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Austro-Bavarian States is ranked 21,599th in the world and 1,089th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 82.94 on the Human Development Index.
