The Avalonian Exclave of Ehlnar is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lennart with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.397 billion Ehlnarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Citadel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Information Technology.
The government is reining in public spending, abortions are routinely performed in Ehlnar's hospitals, Ehlnar's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, and new urban roads are threatening city parks. Crime is well under control. Ehlnar's national animal is the red dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the denar.
