The Federal Commonwealth of Pax Aurea is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Gaius Proctus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.612 billion Aureans 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 large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pacifica. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aurean economy, worth an astonishing 15,717 trillion Aurean Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 549,321 Aurean Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Aurean weed picker are way up, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables. Crime is totally unknown. Pax Aurea's national animal is the wild cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Council of World Religions.

Pax Aurea is ranked 206,643rd in the world and 164th in European Union for Most Primitive, scoring -1458.13 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
