Austria (German: Österreich) is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It is bordered to the east by Hungary, the west by Switzerland, the south by Slovenia, and to the north by Poland and Czechoslovakia. Its capital is currently Styria. Located in one of the most war-torn regions of Europe, Austria followed the Good Neighbor Doctrine.
A diverse country, Austria is home to people with differing views, and differing backgrounds. In addition to a majority of real-life Austrians, the country plays host to citizens from across the world, who have coalesced into an inclusive and open community. There are currently five parties in Austria.
Austria was one of the original nations added to eRepublik, and has had a long and storied history. Recent history has been marked by a period of recovery after the dual crisis of the treasury theft by President N I K A N, and Italian invasion, in November 2010. After a successful resistance war restored Austria to the map in Vorarlberg, the nation has worked to cope with the shifting of allegiances and alliances that has taken place throughout the world.
After a shortened term by Travis James, who succeeded N I K A N via impeachment, PrinceOfAustria became President for two consecutive terms in December 2010 and January 2011, helping to restore a sense of political stability and allowing new issues to arise. Defining issues of the era included tax policy in response to resource changes, rental agreements loaning some regions to neighbors, the return of other regions, and ongoing tensions with Czechoslovakia. These issues remained in place as JaFe took office in February 2011.
Although Austria is a German-speaking country, due to the makeup of the Austrian community, English is a frequently spoken language due to its status as a common second language for people from around the world. Press releases by the government typically are released bilingually - both in German, and English. While the press also contains articles by citizens in this manner, it is also common for articles to simply be in one language or the other.
The official paper of the Austrian Government is the, where press releases are issued. In addition to the media within the game, much communication in Austria takes place on the IRC chat where it is possible to talk in real time to both other Austrians and citizens from across the eWorld.

Located in a mountainous region of Europe, Austria has an alpine climate - with warm summers, and cold winters. Although originally possessing 8 regions, Austria now controls only one region.
Austria consists of 8 original regions.
The original territory of Austria is composed of several regions:
Burgenland (occupied by ), Carinthia (occupied by ), Lower Austria (occupied by ), Salzburg (occupied by ), Styria (occupied by ), Tyrol (occupied by ), Upper Austria (occupied by ), and Vorarlberg (occupied by ).
Its current territories are listed below:
Austria has a population of 167 people currently living in the nation. However, due to several regions being occupied, and others living abroad to fight, many with Austrian citizenship currently live outside of Austria. The composition of Austria’s population consists of a majority who are real life Austrians, and others from foreign nations who play the game in Austria.
Despite the diverse backgrounds of individual citizens, a cohesive community has been formed. Along with real life meetings, people frequently communicate through IRC chat. The Austrian Constitution involves the community - through public referendums - in a number of direct ways, requiring votes on all matters dealing with alliances and land rent agreements.
Austria’s economy is geared heavily towards food production - with much of its companies being in this area. Due to the large ratio of companies to population, Austria features a high level of employment - and indeed, companies frequently find themselves having worker shortages. While the low value of the currency makes exporting from Austria easier, the lack of any resource besides deer hinders the export capacity of the economy.

Austria’s political environment is one that encompasses views from across the political spectrum. There are five parties currently. While diverse in viewpoints, there is much cooperation between all the parties against harmful political takeover efforts. Instead, they work in favor of legitimate members of the community holding government positions. Citizen participation is highly valued, and governments frequently have reached out to newer members of the community to help in positions and roles.
