The Allied States of Anowa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Oleander II with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 21.22 billion Anowans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terrenus. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anowan economy, worth a remarkable 3,568 trillion Drachmas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,160 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anowa's national animal is the Gryphon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anowan Pantheon.

Anowa is ranked 181,033rd in the world and 7,252nd in Lazarus for Safest, scoring 54.48 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
