The Republic of Abduct is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 860 million Abductians 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.0%.

The strong Abductian economy, worth 54.6 trillion coins a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 63,532 coins, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, 90% of active duty AAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Fox Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abduct's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abduct is ranked 145,464th in the world and 150th in Enadia for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
