The Armed Corporations of Aurora Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General John Westmoreland with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and conspicuous electricity pylons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 25.72 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 22,551 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 876,802 golden dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,350,639 per year while the poor average 20,066, a ratio of 366 to 1.

The military has adopted a weird double-fisted salute, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism. 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 171,023rd in the world and 211th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Longest Average Lifespans, with 21.05 Years.
