The Avian Federation of Axdel is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Cristian Alvarado with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.277 billion Axdelians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asceņa. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Axdelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,681 trillion Red Feathers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 203,109 Red Feathers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime is totally unknown. Axdel's national animal is the Colour Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Feather Brushing.

Axdel is ranked 141,374th in the world and 6,018th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 200.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
