The Independently Wealthy Widow of Auphelia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Mother of Monsters and Maladies with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.313 billion subjects hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Palace of Eternal Pleasure. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient subject economy, worth a remarkable 1,568 trillion Scathing Criticisms 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,678 Scathing Criticisms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany The Mother of Monsters and Maladies to meetings with foreign heads of state, the doctor has cold hands, and you're only as old as you feel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Auphelia's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Auphelia is ranked 232,677th in the world and 8,736th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 529.49 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
