The Empire of Arouran is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Silvers with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.705 billion Arouranians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, 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. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arouranian economy, worth 896 trillion Goldcoins a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,188 Goldcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and former planespotters are dusting off long-abandoned anoraks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 20,988th in the world and 347th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 896 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
