The Ongoing State of Absentia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by youse with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 37.933 billion Absentians 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 tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Middle of Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 4.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Absentian economy, worth an astonishing 20,258 trillion ergs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 534,069 ergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Helicopter parenting is on the rise, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, and there's some really clean windows in Absentian houses. Crime is totally unknown. Absentia's national animal is the cambot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Absentia is ranked 140,566th in the world and 1st in CDW Federation for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 34.35 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
