The Robber Barons of North Aurelia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Haakon Tonvare with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.173 billion Vas Aurel enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kestalagra. The average income tax rate is 7.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vas Aurelne economy, worth a remarkable 5,363 trillion lachis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 312,344 lachis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, royal processions are often mistaken for pride parades, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. North Aurelia's national animal is the Kestrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

North Aurelia is ranked 1,505th in the world and 40th in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 202.76 quips per hour.
