The Kingdom of Auralon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Faustus with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.773 billion Auralonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Auralonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,364 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 175,589 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Auralon, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and Auralonians believe manners maketh the leader. 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 11,715th in the world and 501st in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 3,896.4 milliStalins.
