The Grand Duchy of AbsAnumia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.795 billion AbsAnumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Commerce and Defence are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Uranium Mining.

The government is reining in public spending, ravers are having trouble getting used to blackcurrant squash instead of vodka, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and euthanasia is illegal. 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 358th in the Rejected Realms and 25,272nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 117 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
