The Kingdom of Aabeu Rubze is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 40 million Aabeu Rubzeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Public Transport, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 6.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Aabeu Rubzean economy, worth 2.16 trillion Rubzik Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is 53,998 Rubzik Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, and model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf". Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Aabeu Rubze's national animal is the king cobra.

Aabeu Rubze is ranked 171,756th in the world and 354th in Refugia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 546.71 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
