The Republic of Abasik is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The cynical, devout population of 3.02 billion Abasikians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaniar. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Abasikian economy, worth 90.7 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,028 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, police detectives carry phrenology calipers as part of their standard kit, college students sell their most valuable possessions just to afford pizza, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Abasik's national animal is the kangaroo.

Abasik is ranked 110,193rd in the world and 208th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 18.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
