The Imperium and Populusque of Avaron is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Iulius Augustus with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.494 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, with Defense, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiberius. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Avar economy, worth a remarkable 4,852 trillion Denariums a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 313,190 Denariums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,989,158 per year while the poor average 20,429, a ratio of 97.4 to 1.

The nation leads Novo Brasil in per capita stalking, life expectancy is way down but posthuman perfectionism is way up, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Avaron's national animal is the Tellephassonic Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Pantheon.

Avaron is ranked 24,307th in the world and 32nd in Novo Brasil for Longest Average Lifespans, with 71.67 Years.
