The Spiraling Holy Bronze Hawk of Ayvari is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leane Ivory with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 4.799 billion Ayvarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avian Roost. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ayvarian economy, worth 625 trillion claws a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,241 claws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Ayvari flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ayvari's national animal is the Bronze Avian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sky Worship.

Ayvari is ranked 16,277th in the world and 33rd in The Black Hawks for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,084.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
