CurrencyAstallan Dollar

The Ruthless Polity of Astal Aavors is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Vetinari with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.54 billion Aavorsians 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 prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Astallan economy, worth 348 trillion Astallan Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 137,245 Astallan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, and Astallan tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Astal Aavors's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astal Aavors is ranked 118,239th in the world and 5,510th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 922.18 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
