The Armed Republic of Auristania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Adele van Tiberia with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.941 billion Auristanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caerdiwazz. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Auristanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,740 trillion dariqs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 194,641 dariqs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents dread their examinations more than their children, songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Auristania's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pontiffism.

Auristania is ranked 49,040th in the world and 1,066th in the Pacific for Nudest, with 182.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
