The Allied States of Anowa is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Oleander II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.748 billion Anowans 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 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 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,627 trillion Drachmas a year, is quite 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 166,841 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 149,837th in the world and 2nd in Novae Terrae for Most Armed, with 0.29 weapons per person.
