The Empire of Arouran is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Silvers with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.868 billion Arouranians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silver City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arouranian economy, worth 557 trillion Goldcoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,183 Goldcoins, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, rumor has it that the government was paid off by the mob to allow casinos to reopen, small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Arouranian sovereign territory, and the police double as repo men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arouran's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arouran is ranked 138,269th in the world and 5,489th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -1.67 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
