The Metropolis of Avadon is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Apollo with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.893 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piltover. The average income tax rate is 84.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Avadonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,919 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 common. Average income is an impressive 120,795 Cosines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 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 10,551st in the world and 236th in the West Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.17 Years.
