The Armed Corporations of Aurora Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General John Westmoreland with an even hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.374 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 26,158 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 921,905 golden dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,634,951 per year while the poor average 8,294, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, Auroraian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. 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 6th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 8.63 million Standard Monetary Units.
