A Little About It
The major cities in Austria include, Vienna with a population of 1,691,468; Graz and Styria with a population of 222,326; Linz and Upper Austria with a population of 181,162; and Salzburg with a population of 150,269. Vienna is the capital of Austria, and was known for being very artistic. Many artist created beautiful things. However, these things weren't just art, they were music too. Beethoven, Mozart, and Sigmund Freud created beautiful pieces of music; Egon Schiele, and Gustav Klimt created historic and "of the day" buildings which showcased their talents, and Vienna's background and culture. That's why many people live there, because they love to see the history, culture, and the story Vienna has to tell.

Citizens have certain rights and responsibilities in Austria. Some responsibilities, are for citizens to have a clean personal record, meaning they have no criminal record, and when trying to get a job you must have business background information, and flawless references. Some rights are you can drink when you turn 16, and start driving when you turn 18. However, to drive, a valid driving license for your country as well as an International Driver's License are needed. But, if you don't have your "photo" license,and only the "paper" license, you must carry around your passport when driving.
The difference between our rights/responsibilities and austria's is the age of drinking, driving, personal record is not a requirement in the United States, but we encourage it, unlike how it is a requirement in Austria, etc.
There are many products imported and exported in and out of Austria, including different types of machinery, equipments, motor vehicles, paper/paperboard, metal goods, iron, steel, textiles, and different food things.

Austria is the 11th wealthiest country in the world, so I would consider my country very wealthy. You can also tell this, because the GDP per capita is very high, standing at $43,537.
Schooling for young children can start very early. Children can start kindergarten as young as 3, and stay until age 6; or go to pre-school until age 5. Also, babies and very young children can be taken care in "nursing homes," also known day cares. Regular schooling however, starts at age six, and goes until about age 15. The first four years are usually completed in primary schools. Next, at about age 10, children are allowed to attend either a junior high school, or secondary school. Then, from age 14-15 children can attend polytechnica schools, where they study, and prepare for apprenticeships. However, special schools are available for kids with special needs, or disabilities. For the first eight to nine years of schooling, these children can attend special pedagogical centers, and special needs schools. The nine years children from age 6-15 spend learning are mandatory, but children are allowed to attend more schools, or go to a college, to get a better education afterwards.
Rights to women are just now being recognized. Domestic violence has been occurring for awhile now, and citizens, and the government are just now recognizing it. The job of women was thought to be take care of the house, and children, but looks like that should really be rethought, and it is being rethought! Luckily, children's rights are better. Things are looking in a more favorable light for them!
Age 15 and older in Austria can read and write, and the total population literacy rate is 98%. Additionally, the life expectancy for citizens is 80.04 years.
