The The United Socialist States of Commune of Australasia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Peoples Council with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.313 billion Australasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Australasian economy, worth 171 trillion Australasian pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 130,488 Australasian pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'The Peoples Council and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, political candidates are regularly blocked for minor convictions from their teenage years, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commune of Australasia's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Commune of Australasia is ranked 99,570th in the world and 2,779th in the Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 50.37 Insults Per Minute.
