The Republic of Avaseau is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. Its compassionate, cynical population of 11.726 billion are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. The average income tax rate is 40%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Uranium Mining.
The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and Leader has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Avaseau's national animal is the hawk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Presbyterian, and its currency is the euro.
