The Hinterlands of Augustin Proxy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Domeric Asten with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.239 billion Augustins enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Proxima. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Augustin economy, worth a remarkable 3,812 trillion senses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 267,777 senses, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, aides are afraid to ask if Domeric Asten wants a cup of tea or coffee, and destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare senses. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Augustin Proxy's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Augustin Proxy is ranked 272,880th in the world and 177th in Cape of Good Hope for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -8.37 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
