The Empire of Arouran is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Silvers with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.988 billion Arouranians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silver City. The average income tax rate is 74.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arouranian economy, worth 803 trillion Goldcoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,121 Goldcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arouran's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arouran is ranked 22,201st in the world and 346th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 803 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
