Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federation of Auralia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Terrence Chapman with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.518 billion Auralians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auralius. The average income tax rate is 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Auralian economy, worth 926 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 142,073 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, anti-government web sites are springing up, and research into 'designer babies' is banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Auralia's national animal is the red-tailed hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Auralia is ranked 46th in Catholic and 121,391st in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -316 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
