The Collaborative Community of Abreddey is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Gartonia with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.054 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glorius Jewel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.
The government snoops on private internet connections, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, the minority party is vilified for everything from fires to earthquakes, and theoretical science is only theoretical. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Abreddey's national animal is the Sidehill Gouger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is the Illuminati Order, and its currency is the Beetain Dollar.
