The Democratic States of Aweston is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 260 million Awestonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Awestonian economy, worth 6.09 trillion Posadists a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 23,404 Posadists, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, and there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aweston's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aweston is ranked 172,659th in the world and 7,009th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
