The Nordic Empire of Aureumterra is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Lisette with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.087 billion Aureumterrans 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 juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potens. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Aureumterrese economy, worth a remarkable 1,024 trillion Cocoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,339 Cocoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
The government seizes all major gold finds, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, and royal princesses are recognizable by their plastic tiaras. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aureumterra's national animal is the Serm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Nordic Protestantism.
