The Metropolis of Avadon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Apollo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.328 billion Avadonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piltover. The average income tax rate is 82.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Avadonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,720 trillion Cosines a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,104 Cosines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avadon's national animal is the Teemo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Teemoism.

Avadon is ranked 3,009th in the world and 106th in the West Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 46 Valid Endorsements.
