The Iranian Socialist Republic of Avystan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Arhid Farouhar with a fair hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.066 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 enormous, corrupt government 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 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avystonian economy, worth 535 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 88,275 Raels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers. 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 201,250th in the world and 12th in Marxia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.4 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
