Regional Influence: Squire

Location: The East Pacific

The Place of Adavan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.426 billion Adavanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearlin. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Adavanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,127 trillion Pennies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 179,477 Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, the nation forgives those who are big enough to admit they made a mistake, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime is totally unknown. Adavan's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Adavan is ranked 1,648th in the world and 90th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 48,558 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
