The Hegemony of Abreddey is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Hegemon Cadethen the Cunning with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 6.692 billion Abreddites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gartonia. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Abreddine economy, worth a remarkable 1,070 trillion bucks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,028 bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abreddey's national animal is the Hoop Snake and its national religion is non-existent.
