The Allied States of Anowa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Oleander II with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.457 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 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,775 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 169,790 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Anowa, nose plugs are the latest Anowan fashion accessory, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and Queen Oleander II's speeches are beloved by insomniacs. 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 84,948th in the world and 5th in Novae Terrae for Most Extreme, scoring 18.03 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
