The Armed Corporations of Aurora Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General John Westmoreland with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.072 billion Auroraians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 30,042 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 966,852 golden dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 9,055,981 per year while the poor average 8,698, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, General John Westmoreland's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance, and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. 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 51st in the world and 1st in United Kingdom for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 202,493.08 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
