The Empire of Auraes
“Peace and Justice”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Location: Conch Kingdom
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Empire of Auraes is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 117 million Auraesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Auraesian economy, worth 2.82 trillion Auraesian couronnes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 24,122 Auraesian couronnes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Leader Pics" has made Leader's mom a celebrity, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Auraes's national animal is the Axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
