The Kingdom of Auralon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Faustus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.203 billion Auralonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Auralonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,959 trillion golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 174,875 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, tourists avoid using the nation's bugged phones and monitored internet, minority children find the right answer in school tests is always the most insulting one, and the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Auralon's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Auralon is ranked 268,321st in the world and 6,748th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 0.5 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
