The Armed Corporations of Aurora Islands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General John Westmoreland with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.871 billion Auroraians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Auroraian economy, worth an astonishing 25,483 trillion golden dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 914,353 golden dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,564,227 per year while the poor average 8,226, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown. Aurora Islands's national animal is the golden hummingbird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aurora Islands is ranked 24th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 55,944.31 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
