The Iranian Socialist Republic of Avystan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Arhid Farouhar with a fair hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.219 billion Iranians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tehran. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avystonian economy, worth 647 trillion Raels 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 89,668 Raels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, the nation excels at displacement, and it's said that Arhid Farouhar can turn every pleasure into a chore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avystan's national animal is the Persian lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Avystan is ranked 127,343rd in the world and 5th in Marxia for Largest Black Market, with 243 billion Standard Monetary Units.
