The Warden of Tasmania of West Aurelia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Stephen Hayes with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.818 billion West Aurelians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverside. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient West Aurelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,404 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 94,799 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 630,429 per year while the poor average 5,439, a ratio of 115 to 1.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, West Aurelia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. West Aurelia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

West Aurelia is ranked 98,119th in the world and 8th in New Atlas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,693.26 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
