The People's Republic of Averdeen is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by First Marshal Horus with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.817 billion Avelinians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Champs Fleur. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Avelinian economy, worth 389 trillion senariis 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 dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 101,967 senariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Averdeen's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Averdeen is ranked 33,785th in the world and 908th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 28.08 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
