The Aguarian Province of Lavendoria is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Governor Rhincodonius with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.956 billion Aguarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Aguarbanapolis. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Aguarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,171 trillion Inaguas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 196,722 Inaguas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Governor Rhincodonius and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, high school bands practice by moonlight, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and billions of Inaguas are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lavendoria's national animal is the Violet Sabrewing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lavendoria is ranked 103,800th in the world and 4,222nd in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 141 billion Standard Monetary Units.
