The Exalted Exarchy of Absentius is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Exarchos Nicodemus Fabianus Aquila with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.603 billion Absentines 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praetiorum. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Absentiusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,033 trillion Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 184,422 Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Safe drinking water is considered a luxury, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Absentiusian lands, saying "don't do anything that Exarchos Nicodemus Fabianus Aquila wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Absentius's national animal is the Great Golden Two-Headed Blood Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Celestialism.

Absentius is ranked 17,934th in the world and 43rd in New Western Empire for Highest Economic Output, with 1,033 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
