The Monarchical Republic of Awell Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harsh Joshi with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, devout population of 7.335 billion Awellians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gandhidham. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Awellian economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion Aweses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,672 Aweses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Awell Islands's national animal is the peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism and Jainism and Zoroastrianism.

Awell Islands is ranked 4,574th in the world and 7th in India for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,705.53 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
