The Queendom of Auseriel is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Eva Jensen with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.022 billion Auserielians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Auserielian economy, worth 117 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,083 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Most ambassadors from Auseriel retire only a few years after being appointed, out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Auseriel's national animal is the Pegasus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Auseriel is ranked 159,354th in the world and 5,228th in Balder for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -11.81 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
