Aurora, sometimes Uspria is a continent in the Southern and Eastern hemispheres, located south of Cereneria, east of Arcturia, and north of Sempiterna. Its main bodies consist of mainland Aurora, the Dragonian Archipelago, the islands of Bai Lung, and various other offshore continental islands. Aurora is bordered entirely by bodies of water, with the Morstaybishlian Sea to the north, the Packilvanian Ocean to the northwest, the Kormistazic Sea to the southwest, the Sempiternic Ocean and Azure Sea to the south, and the Cerenerian Ocean to the east.

It is the fourth largest continent by landmass at approximately 16,300,000 square kilometers. Politically, the continent is divided amongst 26 sovereign countries, the largest of which by land area, GDP, and population being Great Morstaybishlia, encompassing around 35% of the total landmass, 41% of population, and 39% of GDP. As of 2021, Aurora had a total population of approximately 1.1 billion individuals. The climate of Aurora is incredibly diverse, ranging from oceanic and temperate climates in the central and western regions, subtropical savannah in the northern coast, mediterranean to the south, and desert climates in the east.

Sapient life has been present on Aurora in some form or other for millions of years, with evidence of the endemic Cava species dating back to approximately 2 million years ago. Outside of the cava, the two other prominent species on Aurora are the human and elven populations, both species having migrated from Yasteria, humans approximately 1.8 million years ago and elves 200 Kya. In the modern day, the makeup of Aurora is largely human, however significant minorities of elven, vulpine, and cava populations are widespread throughout the continent. The culture of Aurora can be divided into five primary spheres: Axdelian, Morstaybishlian, Ethalrian, Salovian, and Codexian, all of which intermingled to produce a unifying theme of Auroran primacy during much of the continent's history, such an ideology driving bouts of colonialism starting as early as the 1100's and 1200's into nearby Arcturia. Centuries of rivalry amongst the three largest Auroran nations (Great Morstaybishlia, Ethalria, and Salovia) eventually culminated in the start of the Great War, the largest and deadliest conflict in world history. The period immediately following the Great War saw the beginning of the Auroran Space Race and Auroran Cold War, which again sparked into conflict through the Auroran Imperial War (AIW), the deadliest conflict exclusively on the continent to date, the war ending with the use of the Kevatuul orbital nuclear weapon. Due to the sheer deadliness of the AIW, a desire to prevent further war arose among the Auroran public, resulting in the creation of the Auroran Continental Assembly, a now-defunct organization that, with the end of the Auroran-Cerenerian War, would form into the United Nations of the Auroran Continent. As of 2022 there are 26 sovereign states on Aurora, 22 of which have joined the United Nations of the Auroran Continent.
