Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Ainavlys is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sitravon Cificap with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.637 billion Ainavlysians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byzorcis. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ainavlysian economy, worth a remarkable 5,392 trillion Cificaps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 324,109 Cificaps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, Sitravon Cificap's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ainavlys's national animal is the Divine Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Dragoonism.

Ainavlys is ranked 17,283rd in the world and 597th in Balder for Highest Drug Use, scoring 106.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
