The Confederate States of Auspelia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Alfred Dockery with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.488 billion Auspelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newtown. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Auspelian economy, worth 92.2 trillion Auspelian Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,945 Auspelian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Auspelian selfishness, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, and politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Auspelia's national animal is the Wallaby.

Auspelia is ranked 96,013th in the world and 1,884th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
