The Armed Corporations of Aurora Islands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by General John Westmoreland with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.224 billion Auroraians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Auroraian economy, worth an astonishing 24,603 trillion golden dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 903,744 golden dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,464,832 per year while the poor average 8,131, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is totally unknown. Aurora Islands's national animal is the golden hummingbird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aurora Islands is ranked 26th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 55,269.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
