The Democratic Republic of Avonto is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 320 million Avontonese are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avanjela. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Avontoan economy, worth 16.2 trillion Avontonese Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,578 Avontonese Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Avontonese Dollars battlesuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avonto's national animal is the Avontonese Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Avonto is ranked 17,975th in the world and 54th in The Free Nations Region for Most Pacifist, with 122.01 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
