The Depression of Aweland is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.733 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 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Awelandic economy, worth 296 trillion 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 171,062 Aweland dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, and citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers. 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 70,714th in the world and 420th in Europe for Largest Populations, with 1.73 billion Capita.
