The Castleship of Agritum is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by High Queen Gwendolyn Pendragon with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.843 billion Avalonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Agritum, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agritum's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Multiversal Pound Sterling.

Agritum is ranked 1st in Ankh Mauta and 700th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 203 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
