The Kingdom of United Avon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King William III with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.542 billion Avonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.1%.

The all-consuming Avonian economy, worth 154 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 100,052 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 339,986 per year while the poor average 21,715, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.

Blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and critical thinking is grounds for expulsion from university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Avon's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Avon.

United Avon is ranked 5,066th in the world and 1st in Kayfabeland for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,033.66 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
