The Kingdom of Auralon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Faustus with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.086 billion Auralonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Auralonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,246 trillion golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,890 golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, citizens must pay to enjoy Auralon's pristine beaches, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Auralon's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Auralon is ranked 75,731st in the world and 2,661st in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,082.01 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
