The Imperial State of the Crown of Angvar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Katharina II with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.744 billion Angvarians 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, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordegard. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Angvarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,208 trillion Angvarian couronnes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 322,910 Angvarian couronnes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Much of Angvar's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, and undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Angvar's national animal is the common raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Miraculism.

Angvar is ranked 302,954th in the world and 863rd in Concord for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -117 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
