The Golden Empire of Aureumterra is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Lisette with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.374 billion Aureumterrese 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potens. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Aureumterran economy, worth 235 trillion Cocoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 171,753 Cocoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 552,417 per year while the poor average 40,446, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

A large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders, political activists are routinely executed, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, and Nordic Protestantism has been named as Aureumterra's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aureumterra's national animal is the Serm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Nordic Protestantism.

Aureumterra is ranked 34,959th in the world and 2nd in The Jupiter Pact for Most Armed, with 0.47 Weapons Per Person.
