The Original Flavour of Auphelia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Feminist Fatale with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.284 billion Auphelians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virgo. The average income tax rate is 65.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Auphelian economy, worth 630 trillion Pains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 147,272 Pains, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. 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 9,186th in the world and 268th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 91.45 Quips Per Hour.
