The Confederal Directorate of Aura Banitia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Rurik Lagoda with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.687 billion Banitians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Banitian economy, worth 883 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 188,592 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, all footpaths have tollbooths, and the horniness of the great-horned Hooded Crow is considered a national priority. 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 Hooded Crow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Phaetism.

Aura Banitia is ranked 3,590th in the world and 73rd in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 145.81 quips per hour.
