The Principality of Aurasys is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.043 billion Aurasysians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.8%.

The powerhouse Aurasysian economy, worth 74.3 trillion Bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 71,260 Bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 247,815 per year while the poor average 14,934, a ratio of 16.6 to 1.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aurasys's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Aurasys is ranked 51,255th in the world and 12th in The levellers for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 97.2 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
