“You're happiest when filling your daily work quota!”

The Collaborative Community of Abreddey is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Cadethen with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.375 billion AAbreddites are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic 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 Haversonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.
Stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people". Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Abreddey's national animal is the Sidehill Gouger, its national religion is the Government, and its currency is the Beetain Dollar.
