The Ruthless Polity of Astal Aavors is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lord Vetinari with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.054 billion Aavorsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Astallan economy, worth 272 trillion Astallan Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,605 Astallan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Astal Aavors's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Astal Aavors is ranked 12,902nd in the world and 594th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 87.86 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
