The Nationalist State of Avidina is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Marshal Enzio Beakolini with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.981 billion Avians 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 relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vircia. The average income tax rate is 21.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Avidinan economy, worth 169 trillion Silver Feathers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 85,618 Silver Feathers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, teenagers claim that morning paper rounds are performance art, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Marshal Enzio Beakolini's desk. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avidina's national animal is the Brown Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Avidina is ranked 226,866th in the world and 304th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Beautiful Environments, with 342.21 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
