The Constitutional Monarchy of Avemterra is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.559 billion Avemterrans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawkesbury. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avemterran economy, worth 785 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 119,753 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. 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 221,964th in the world and 9,976th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15.86 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
