The Socialist Republic of Abbagagania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by General Secretary with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.993 billion Abbagaganians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint François. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Abbagaganian economy, worth a remarkable 1,652 trillion Knuts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 165,395 Knuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, digital novelty coins make for surprising vanguards of the revolution, and community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home. Crime is totally unknown. Abbagagania's national animal is the Ground Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abbagagania is ranked 233,517th in the world and 462nd in Forest for Most Conservative, scoring 9 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
