Imperium of Avalon

Population2.083 billion

LeaderEmpereor Douglas Robert Drake


The Empire of Imperium of Avalon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empereor Douglas Robert Drake with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 2.083 billion Imperium of Avalonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Imperium of Avalonian economy, worth 157 trillion Sterlings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,385 Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Imperium of Avalonian language, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, and burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperium of Avalon's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imperium of Avalon is ranked 128,459th in the world and 5,443rd in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -3.3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
