The Your Unfriendly Neighbour of Aweland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zuck Markerberg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.145 billion Awelets 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cosmopolis. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Awelandic economy, worth 393 trillion New Aweland Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 183,567 New Aweland Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. Crime is totally unknown. Aweland's national animal is the dodo bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Trading Card Auction.

Aweland is ranked 164,110th in the world and 8,610th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.14 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
