The Lambda Republic of Aweland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Zuck Markerberg with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.712 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 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Awelandic economy, worth 524 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 193,388 New Aweland Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime is totally unknown. Aweland's national animal is the dodo bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aweland is ranked 4,546th in the world and 77th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 45.81 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
