The Constitutional Monarchy of Avalonde is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Pyewackett with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.31 billion Avalondeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mamecester. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Avalondean economy, worth a remarkable 1,768 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 189,949 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The countryside is shrouded by wind farms, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels. Crime is totally unknown. Avalonde's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Avalonde is ranked 1,513th in the world and 2nd in Gay Equality for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.68 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
