The Empire of White Avalon is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 977 million White Avalonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctity. The average income tax rate is 23.3%.

The thriving White Avalonian economy, worth 74.3 trillion Avalonian Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 76,051 Avalonian Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. White Avalon's national animal is the White Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

White Avalon is ranked 66,235th in the world and 1,648th in Balder for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 73.61 on the Hayek Index.
