Avaritia is one of the Great Nations of the world. Avaritia is well known for its massive black market, as well as the many rival criminal organizations that make up the nation.
Avaritia is officially a "Republic", but due to the mass corruption of politicians, almost always bought and paid for by the criminal empires of Avaritia, it is functionally an oligarchy. Avaritia is a medium sized nation, with a high population density. Most of Avaritia's population live in poverty, with practically no middle class to seperate them from the super rich, made up mostly of criminal leaders, shady corporation heads, and corrupt politicians.
Avaritia has two state-heads at any given time, the current are Lucius Avaritus, and Claudius Cornelius. Lucius is a descendant of one of the founding families of Avaritia, and is one of the few, if not the only "clean" politician in Avaritia. Though elections are usually heavily slanted in whoever the rich favour, Lucius was voted in due to ridiculous levels of support from the low-class Avaritian citizens. Lucius is dead-set on cleaning up Avaritia and sweeping the criminal underground from the nation, wanting to restore his home to its former glory, before it became a massive criminal cesspool. This isn't the easiest thing in the world to do however, as his co-leader, Claudius, is completely on the payroll of Avaritia's criminal organizations, making it incredibly difficult for Lucius to get anything done under normal means.
