The Pacific Coast Highway of Avakael is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Avakael with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.361 billion Avakaelians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makkrathan. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Avakaelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,268 trillion Halicarnassuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 139,930 Halicarnassuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Avakael, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most, and sales of trenchcoats are on the rise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avakael's national animal is the White Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cruor.
