The Armed Corporations of Aurora Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General John Westmoreland with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.009 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 27,056 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 932,684 golden dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,735,940 per year while the poor average 8,391, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

National stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, voting is voluntary, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors. 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 12th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Corrupt Governments, with 1,864.04 kickbacks per hour.
