The Sadly Not Average Nation of AverageJoevlania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by John Smith with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.783 billion AverageJoevlanians 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 Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Normalville. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong AverageJoevlanian economy, worth 371 trillion Joe coins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,293 Joe coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, AverageJoevlania's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Cӑrsínionn's Jellyfishball fields, and people boast about their low income on their dating profiles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AverageJoevlania's national animal is the Cӑrsínionn's Jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Averagia.

AverageJoevlania is ranked 31,538th in the world and 1,626th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 70.51 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
