Winter Aura

Population8.158 billion

CapitalGlacier Cavern

AnimalPolar Bear

The Kingdom of Winter Aura is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.158 billion Winter Aurans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glacier Cavern. The average income tax rate is 54.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Winter Auran economy, worth a remarkable 1,019 trillion Aurums a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,985 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winter Aura's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whatever.

Winter Aura is ranked 113,122nd in the world and 3,864th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 937.57 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
