We have artificial grass in our capital, Moop, and we have a monarchy. There are lots of plains, and we don't allow hunting, except on over populated animals. Our main language is English, but there is also Spanish and French speakers, too. Our educational requirements are that you have to finish, preschool, elementary school, and high school. It's the peoples' choice if they want to go to college, but if they don't, they must join the military. You must stay in the military for 3 years, and then you can leave. People of the age of 18-21 must stay in the military, and they also must sign up for selective service.

Four things that are illegal
- Harassment(All types of harassment are illegal)
Type of Government
The type of government we chose is monarchy. The reason we chose this is because then there won't be that many opinions on big decisions. Also, the way we choose a new king is that it will be passed down from father to son. If there are no sons or daughters, it will go to the king's brother. If he is dead or the king doesn't have a brother, then it will go to another person of power, or the people will pick a new royal family. We will have a constitution that won't give the king all the power, and if the people don't like the way he rules, they have the right to choose a new king by vote. 55% of the people who voted will have to want a new ruler for there to be a new king. We don't want a direct or representative democracy because there will be too many opinions on important decisions. A dictatorship wouldn't work because we don't want one person to have complete power over the country, just most of the power. We don't want a theocracy because we want to make our own decisions. Finally, an oligarchy wouldn't work because we don't want more than one opinion on important topics because it would be hard to decide on things.
Type of Economy
The type of economy we have in Aurora is capitalism. We let the people run their own businesses, but we control a few things, like the United States. The government in Aurora controls more than the United States government, though. We don't let anyone have a monopoly on any type of business, like cars, food, or clothes. You must have workers that are over the age of 15, and you can't kick someone out of your business for unnecessary reasons, like by what race you are, or if you are homosexual. You must follow the government rules of owning a business, or you will be shut down.
System of Government
The system of government we have in Aurora is the Unitary system. The person with the most power is the King and Queen in the capital, Moop. The other 25 states have a governor, but he or she has little power. The governor has to listen to what the King and Queen say, but he can make his or her own laws, if the King approves. Every 5 years, the people elect a new governor. You can't run for governor more than once. The only exception is if the people want to keep the governor. They will have to vote, and for the governor to stay in power, 65% of the people who voted have to want the person for governor.
