The Commonwealth of Aourh is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 545 million Aourhans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pakadlo. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Aourhan economy, worth 45.9 trillion sovereigns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,134 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, copyright laws have been abolished, and the suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aourh's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aourh is ranked 35,088th in the world and 1st in Associated Powers Bloc for Largest Governments, scoring 20.95 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
