The Kingdom of Abadazad is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Shabaan al-Hamad with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.435 billion Abadazadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boomtown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.3%.

The powerhouse Abadazadian economy, worth 380 trillion Keys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 85,792 Keys, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Abadazad, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, renewable energy projects have ground to a halt, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abadazad's national animal is the Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tuvuthos.

Abadazad is ranked 28,056th in the world and 596th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 75.43 on the Human Development Index.
