The Wizarding World of Avonhead is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr Ashley Bloomfield with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.851 billion Avonwards are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merrin. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Avewardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,726 trillion Gallions a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,458 Gallions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Kiwi, the old neighbourhood isn't how most Avonwards remember it, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, and citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avonhead's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Avonhead is ranked 30,235th in the world and 797th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 101.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
