The Free Land of Auln is a huge, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 387 million Aulnians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Aulnian economy, worth 4.61 trillion Pebbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 11,912 Pebbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, a policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, anti-government web sites are springing up, and firebombing politicians' offices has become a common way of expressing dissatisfaction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Auln's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Auln is ranked 17,774th in the world and 1st in Traa for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 76.2 Effective Tax Rate.
