The Republic of Avaron is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vittorio di Rovere with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.388 billion Avars are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Manzano. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Avar economy, worth a remarkable 5,417 trillion Avar Francs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 311,541 Avar Francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,722,490 per year while the poor average 28,415, a ratio of 60.6 to 1.

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Avar Franc charge on their phone bill, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Avaron's national animal is the Leucan Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Avar.

Avaron is ranked 47,743rd in the world and 25th in Novo Brasil for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,917.93 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
