The Grand Duchy of AbsAnumia is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.233 billion AbsAnumians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration industries.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and cars are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AbsAnumia's national animal is the tree, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the aana.

AbsAnumia is ranked 1,168th in the Rejected Realms and 82,046th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 0 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
