The Democratic Republic of Avalonica is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jevu'xie ge Restuvia with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.238 billion Avalonicans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avalonican economy, worth 392 trillion valons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 175,429 valons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and Jevu'xie ge Restuvia's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avalonica's national animal is the yechrin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Avalonica is ranked 43,558th in the world and 1,724th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
