The Republic of The Humble Abyss is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.154 billion Abyssians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abyssland. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Humble Abyssian economy, worth 134 trillion uwus a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,152 uwus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Humble Abyss's national animal is the Furby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Skepticism.

The Humble Abyss is ranked 10,616th in the world and 197th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,654.75 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
