The Mother of Polls of Auphelia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Grand High Minister of Auphelia with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.391 billion Councillors are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Torture Labyrinth. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Councillor economy, worth a remarkable 1,038 trillion Bitternesses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 140,555 Bitternesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Councillor tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany The Grand High Minister of Auphelia to meetings with foreign heads of state, and the doctor has cold hands. 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 203,959th in the world and 7,945th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -89.36 on the Hayek Index.
