The Industrial Dystopia of Abslandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by General Augustinus Niedermayer III with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, flagrant waste-dumping, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.368 billion Abslandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Abslandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,341 trillion AbsGov Corporation Vouchers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 453,544 AbsGov Corporation Vouchers, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,908,190 per year while the poor average 28,832, a ratio of 100 to 1.

Abslandia Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, military training in Abslandia emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, and political candidates must be personally vetted by General Augustinus Niedermayer III. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Abslandia's national animal is the Koffing, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Abslandia is ranked 151,402nd in the world and 66th in Novo Brasil for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.31 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
