The Queendom of Avalon Ascendancy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Queen Saara Avalon with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.29 billion Ascendants are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katageios Akropolis. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avalonian economy, worth 156 trillion bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 121,580 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, builders across Avalon Ascendancy are blocked up with orders for new public loos, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avalon Ascendancy's national animal is the starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Avalon Ascendancy is ranked 163,090th in the world and 6,122nd in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -12.22 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
