The Catholic Federation of Auralia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Terrence Chapman with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 11.083 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, with Law & Order, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auralius. The average income tax rate is 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Auralian economy, worth a remarkable 2,129 trillion dollars a year, 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 common. Average income is an impressive 192,125 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Auralia, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", a third of Auralians are e-certified CEOs, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. 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 106,659th in the world and 51st in Catholic for Most Pro-Market, scoring 40.33 on the Rand Index.
