The Castleship of Agritum is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Queen Gwendolyn Pendragon with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.363 billion Avalonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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 99%. 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.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. 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 56th in Ankh Mauta and 113,610th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -55 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
