The Republic of Abesa is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Glorious Mother with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 6.513 billion Abesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astaria. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The very strong Abesian economy, worth 679 trillion aris 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,342 aris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abesa's national animal is the ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is not applicable.

Abesa is ranked 13,429th in the world and 1st in Autarky Alliance for Smartest Citizens, with 78.96 quips per hour.
