The Confederation of Aursi is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Queen Aursia with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.297 billion Aursians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurtumn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Aursian economy, worth 204 trillion Aursifens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 157,465 Aursifens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 563,338 per year while the poor average 31,597, a ratio of 17.8 to 1.

Politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Aursi, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Queen Aursia's most personal functions, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aursi's national animal is the PoKoPoKo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Aursiafism.

Aursi is ranked 210,432nd in the world and 7th in Global Entente of Nations and Alliances for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 314.03 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
