The Republic of Abslandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Central State Council with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.344 billion Abslandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Abslandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,558 trillion Wevaartnotas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 594,862 Wevaartnotas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,333,026 per year while the poor average 52,679, a ratio of 63.3 to 1.

Military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Abslandia's national animal is the Austral Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Abslandia Reformed Church.

Abslandia is ranked 28,888th in the world and 33rd in Novo Brasil for Most Developed, scoring 74.86 on the Human Development Index.
