The Catholic Commonwealth of Auralia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Pope Francis with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.811 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, with Defense, Administration, 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 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 3,200 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 202,396 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 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 3,039th in the world and 8th in Catholic for Highest Economic Output, with 3,200 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
