The Isle of Avalon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lennart with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.518 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 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avalonic economy, worth a remarkable 4,524 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 common. Average income is an amazing 311,616 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 2,352nd in the world and 96th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,897.1 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
