The United States of Auradon is the United Nation and Homeland to all the Heroes and Villains of the Disney Universe, which is the primary setting of the television movie Descendants and Descendants 2.
The USA came into existence 20 years prior to the film, when King Beast forwent going on a honeymoon with Queen Belle, in favor of uniting the fairy tale kingdoms. All villains were rounded up and booted off the Isle of the Lost; many were revived to suffer a fate worse than death, by living without magic.
Life in Auradon soon changed after King Beast declared that magic would mostly be retired so the next generation would learn to rely on their own talents instead of magic. Fairy Godmother was placed in charge of overseeing the usage of magic in the USA; the discontent good fairies, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather wanted to use their magic again since they couldn't perform mundane tasks without magic.
Auradon was founded out of the existing kingdoms, the kingdoms remained to have their respective rulers and were devided into The 18 Regions of Auradon.
