The Republic of Abelena is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Gylfi Thor with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 947 million Abelenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bebiron. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Abelenan economy, worth 85.0 trillion xoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 89,725 xoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Abelenan radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, Gylfi Thor has just been declared ruler of Abelena in an international press conference, and the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abelena's national animal is the Lea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abelena is ranked 26,932nd in the world and 376th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.98 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
