The Armed Corporations of Aurora Islands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General John Westmoreland with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.955 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 24,221 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 898,589 golden dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,416,550 per year while the poor average 8,085, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

The carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, the golden hummingbird stadiums are open 24/7, tourists visit Aurora Islands to mass-moon Auroraian politicians, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. 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 57th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 48,550.77 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
