OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Empire of Avangarn is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Asteravius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.131 billion Avangarnians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadelia. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avangarnian economy, worth 291 trillion Avangas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 136,607 Avangas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avangarn's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Worker's Haven.

Avangarn is ranked 220,876th in the world and 7,594th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 8,333.03 Standard Monetary Units.
