|Leader||Chancellor Simonetta Skalagrad|
The Confederal Directorate of Aura Banitia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Simonetta Skalagrad with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.427 billion Banitians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auralaide. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Banitian economy, worth 490 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,271 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Auralaide, Chancellor Simonetta Skalagrad has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, the paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, and pregnant women get a lot of evil glares from fellow passengers when leaving the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aura Banitia's national animal is the Orca, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Phaetism.
