The Armed Corporations of Aurora Islands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by General John Westmoreland with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 28.816 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 26,789 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 929,679 golden dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,707,777 per year while the poor average 8,364, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

The government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, and the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers. 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 228,219th in the world and 163rd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Primitive, scoring -1806.43 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
