The Catholic Commonwealth of Auralia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Pope Francis with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.301 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, prioritizes Education, although Defense, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Mark's. The average income tax rate is 1.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Auralian economy, worth a remarkable 3,097 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 202,432 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, and holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects. 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 161,457th in the world and 59th in Catholic for Most Inclusive, scoring 39.8 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
