The Persona Obscurus of Aurum Raider is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Vleerian with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.574 billion Aurum Riderians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eleutherophobia. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Aurum Raiderian economy, worth 333 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 59,811 Gold Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, Aurum Raiderian-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, and women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aurum Raider's national animal is the Burnt Forest, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Meygiirism.

Aurum Raider is ranked 87,247th in the world and 1st in Six Flags for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 888.42 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
