The Constitutional Monarchy of Avemterra is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.065 billion Avemterrans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawkesbury. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avemterran economy, worth 736 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,407 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avemterra's national animal is the Puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Avemterra is ranked 191,990th in the world and 9,301st in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
