Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Communist Empire of Avios is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Honorable Chairman with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 25.095 billion Avioans 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 Environment, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Administration receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avios City. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Aviosian economy, worth a remarkable 4,769 trillion Gelds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 190,041 Gelds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, the government seizes all major gold finds, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avios's national animal is the White Pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Avios is ranked 71,367th in the world and 204th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Black Market, with 351 billion Standard Monetary Units.
