The Socialist Republic of Abbagagania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.354 billion Abbagaganians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint François. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Abbagaganian economy, worth a remarkable 1,180 trillion Knuts 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 160,483 Knuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and lobster tastes best when it is red. Crime is totally unknown. Abbagagania's national animal is the Ground Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abbagagania is ranked 203,101st in the world and 413th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -22.52 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
