The Eternal Councillor of Auphelia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Chairwoman of the Local Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.155 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Torture Labyrinth. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Councillor economy, worth a remarkable 1,034 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 144,516 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 Chairwoman of the Local Council 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 81,117th in the world and 3,084th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,371.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
