The Isle of Avalon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lennart with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.897 billion Avalonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Logres. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avalonic economy, worth a remarkable 4,356 trillion silver coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 313,451 silver coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, and a third of Avalonians are e-certified CEOs. Crime is totally unknown. Avalon's national animal is the red dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Druidry.

Avalon is ranked 521st in the world and 32nd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 94.5 Years.
