The Jingoistic States of Aughland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mikail Lind with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.343 billion Aughlandians 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aughland City. The average income tax rate is 72.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Aughlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,231 trillion Badgers a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 194,204 Badgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

The state aims to prevent terrorism by committing acts of terror against suspected aggressors, there's a bright dawn ahead for Aughland, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aughland's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aughland is ranked 12,297th in the world and 7th in Montrandecs Neighbours for Highest Drug Use, scoring 109 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
