Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Technocratic Thalassocracy of Terra Aurelia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the High Council of Progress with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.592 billion Terra Aurelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Aurelia. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The powerhouse Terra Aurelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion Aureuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,669 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", sleazy politicans exploit the Parliamentary Code of Conduct to purge their rivals, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBTA Governor goes house hunting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terra Aurelia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Terra Aurelia is ranked 145,925th in the world and 96th in Confederacy of Allied States for Most Devout, with 4.75 Prayers Per Hour.
