The Catholic Federation of Auralia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Terrence Chapman with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12.514 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 Auralius. The average income tax rate is 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Auralian economy, worth a remarkable 2,485 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 198,652 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

'Red-tailed Hawknado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, Auralians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. 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 108,738th in the world and 45th in Catholic for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 53.12 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
