The Constitutional Empire of Aurora Veritas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Councellor Julius Kerrington with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.258 billion Aurorans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora City. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aurora Veritasian economy, worth 451 trillion talents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 199,741 talents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Aurora Veritas after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aurora Veritas's national animal is the orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Solarity.

Aurora Veritas is ranked 134,781st in the world and 33rd in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 35.89 on the Rand Index.
