The Ruthless Polity of Astal Aavors is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Vetinari with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.484 billion Aavorsians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Astallan economy, worth 345 trillion Astallan Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 138,915 Astallan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Astal Aavors's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
