The Constitutional Monarchy of Avalon Nouveau is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Imperial Majesty Cornelius Fortesque with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 20.787 billion Avalon Nouveauans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port du Roi. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avalon Nouveauan economy, worth a remarkable 3,666 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,360 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avalon Nouveau's national animal is the gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Unified Christianity.

Avalon Nouveau is ranked 2,197th in the world and 87th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,036.59 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
