Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Republic of Abdoa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Datma Kiraz with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.234 billion Abdos 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chadjbi Parma. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Abdo economy, worth 723 trillion albas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,979 albas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime is totally unknown. Abdoa's national animal is the albatros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abdoa is ranked 5,562nd in the world and 2nd in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
