The Queendom of Avalon Ascendancy is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Saara Avalon with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.172 billion Ascendants are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katageios Akropolis. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Avalonian economy, worth 275 trillion bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 126,740 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, and they say that Ascendants made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avalon Ascendancy's national animal is the starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Avalon Ascendancy is ranked 153,216th in the world and 6,692nd in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
