The Sunlight State of Avrelis is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sunni DGST with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.375 billion Avrelisians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avrela. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Avrelisian economy, worth 260 trillion Buttons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,627 Buttons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 324,040 per year while the poor average 29,149, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and the internet has been placed under government control. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Avrelis's national animal is the Dragon puppet, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Greg.

Avrelis is ranked 39,336th in the world and 1st in Snz Magic for Most Conservative, scoring 77.17 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
