The Place of Adavan is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 19.175 billion Adavanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearlin. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Adavanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,484 trillion Pennies 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 181,744 Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and populations of two-headed Bears have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime is totally unknown. Adavan's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Adavan is ranked 180,061st in the world and 7,038th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -76.22 on the Rand Index.
