The Community of Awerbar is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, devout population of 521 million Abarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopía planeta. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Abarian economy, worth 36.9 trillion Kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 70,823 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, people's charity begins and ends at home, wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Awerbar's national animal is the Scandinavian Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Awerbar is ranked 181,354th in the world and 15th in Nordic Territories for Most Pro-Market, scoring -77.22 on the Rand Index.
