The Republic of Avendia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen of Avendia with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.435 billion Avendians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cidade dos Anjos. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Avendian economy, worth 118 trillion Avendian Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,489 Avendian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avendia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of the Griffin.

Avendia is ranked 126,366th in the world and 714th in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 629.82 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
