The United Republic of Aurasreich is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.417 billion Aurasreichians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron City. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aurasreichian economy, worth 507 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 148,636 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Decongestants have replaced Marks in street transactions, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and billions of Marks are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aurasreich's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aurasreich is ranked 8,282nd in the world and 448th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.07 years.
