The Empire of Avacquer is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, complete lack of prisons, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 694 million Avacquerans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Combleux. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.0%.

The all-consuming Avacqueran economy, worth 77.5 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,647 francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 425,194 per year while the poor average 20,305, a ratio of 20.9 to 1.

No one gossips with Leader during diplomatic summits, frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion, the first test of a good kindergartener is the quality of the sponge-baths they give, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Avacquer's national animal is the sunbird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Avacquer is ranked 36,343rd in the world and 902nd in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.45 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
