The Catholic Commonwealth of Auralia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Pope Francis with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.849 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 Law & Order 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 3,208 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 202,414 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, fat-shaming is now public policy, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and babysitters are a thing of the past. 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 7,198th in the world and 3rd in Catholic for Most Politically Free, scoring 87 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
