The Empire of Arouran is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Silvers with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.482 billion Arouranians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silver City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arouranian economy, worth a remarkable 1,103 trillion Goldcoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,301 Goldcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 787,546 per year while the poor average 22,217, a ratio of 35.4 to 1.

No-one bats an eye when 'really good platonic friends' of the same sex hold hands in Arouran, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and the government regrets to say that it is forced to make cuts to citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arouran's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST.

Arouran is ranked 1,823rd in the world and 41st in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 10,259.52 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
