The Republic of Awjan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Syafiq Nasarudin with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.279 billion Awjanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 City of Azur. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Awjanian economy, worth 153 trillion Fsayiqs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 120,136 Fsayiqs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Awjan's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Awjan is ranked 8,792nd in the world and 285th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.67 on the Human Development Index.
