The Kingdom of Auralon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Faustus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.292 billion Auralonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Auralonian economy, worth 765 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 178,397 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, new "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. 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 18,478th in the world and 930th in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 765 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
