Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Avaseau is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 18.582 billion Avaseauans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Avaseauan economy, worth 70.9 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 3,814 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and the Governor has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avaseau's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Avaseau is ranked 2,174th in the world and 17th in Ancient Lands for Most Authoritarian, with 6.31 Stalins.
