The Catholic Federation of Auralia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Terrence Chapman with a fair hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, otherworldly petting zoo, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.532 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 minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Law & Order and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auralius. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Auralian economy, worth a remarkable 1,907 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 181,067 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, chickens roam the streets freely, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 14,486th in the world and 9th in Catholic for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,292.42 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
