The Federal Republic of South Aurora is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Marco Sall with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.008 billion South Aurorans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Borealis. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Auroran economy, worth 94.7 trillion scales a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,913 scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, much of South Aurora's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Aurora's national animal is the bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Aurora is ranked 11,459th in the world and 180th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 84.69 on the Human Development Index.
