Austrivinian Factbook

Postby Austrivinia » Sun Nov 21, 2010 3:00 pm


The Dictatorship of Austrivinia is a small nation, It is a nation of beautifal beaches, majestic plains, and mighty hills. It's mostly warm all year round. There are three major rivers, the Costas, the Borotino, and the Reme's. The nation has a 100 mile coastline with stunning views and fantastic towns to visit.


The national currency is the Belk, the nations economy itself is reasonable, the government has been becoming more and more loose on letting businesses do what they want. There is currently an unemployment rate of 6%, however with the government becoming less strict many are hoping this will reduce the rate and bring in more workers. The nation exports a small amount of oil, large amounts of lumber and mechanical parts. The nation is also renowned in having good food.


The nation was split into city states for years, it was formed into a Independent nation in the 1860. After a bloodless rise to office Frederico Adalberto came into power. During it's founding It's armies were engaged in bloody struggles against foriegn aggressors, but with some innovating and improvising the Austrivinians pulled through, their sacrifice gave rise to a peaceful modern nation which his Excellency rules today. The country has been isolated for years, mostly due to foreign political incidents and struggles. The nation is however looking eagerly towards the future.

The Austrivinian Army (AA) consists of 60,000 men, however in peacetime it fields 30,000. The Navy (AN) consists of 20,000 men and fields an adequate defence, as does the Airforce (AF) which fields 20,000 troops. Most of the Navy and Airforce however are in reserve and only a minority are usually in the field of service. The armed forces however haven't been in an armed conflict in years and probably won't be in a hurry to as their ability to wage war is second rate as is their gear, not to mention all their vehicles and gear are left overs from past administrations, However the military is always looking ahead for whatever they can get to provide an adequate defence, but this is not to say that the Austrivinians aren't strong, they can still fight with impressive heroism and can prove they are a force to be reckoned with.


Today the nation is ruled by his Excellency Frederico Adalberto, he is a strong leader, and rules with a firm hand over his people. There is a senate, they meet with his excellency often to discuss national issues. There aren't any elections, the legal system is fair and just however, as no individual is guilty until proven so. The Capital is Agriatini, it is the largest city and one of if not the most stunning. The second largest city is Amundia.

The people are a hardy folk, and patriotic to say the least, they live in a nation that as they have done as seen progress and hardship alike. There is currently a population of 3.647 Billion, the life expectancy at birth is 4 out of 5. There are a handful of ethnic groups however they are all quite small. There are mostly Protestants and Catholics, with a small minority of jews and other religions. However, each religion has certainly helped shape the nation and still is, and will certainly leave it's repectible mark on the nation in the future.
