The Nordic Empire of Aureumterra is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Lisette with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.23 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potens. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Aureumterran economy, worth 540 trillion Cocoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 167,377 Cocoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 502,883 per year while the poor average 43,486, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

The government seizes all major gold finds, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, and royal princesses are recognizable by their plastic tiaras. 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 26,506th in the world and 3rd in Multiversal Imperial Federation for Highest Economic Output, with 540 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
