The Allied States of Anowa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Oleander II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.539 billion Anowans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt 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 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,929 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 167,021 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 16,940th in the world and 3rd in Novae Terrae for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,629.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
