The Republic of Abslandia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Augustinus Niedermayer III with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.809 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenholm. The average income tax rate is 73.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Abslandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,925 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, 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 604,106 Wevaartnotas, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Abslandia. 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 715th in the world and 3rd in Novo Brasil for Highest Poor Incomes, with 246,117.31 Standard Monetary Units.
