The Commonwealth of Angwayster is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 482 million Angwaysterians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colline-sur-Côte. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Angwaysterian economy, worth 48.4 trillion ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 100,450 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and the new Raven Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Angwayster's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Angwayster is ranked 10,345th in the world and 516th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.76 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
