The Kingdom of Abetton is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Latimer with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.116 billion Abettonians 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, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sauville. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Abettonian economy, worth 84.3 trillion Abetton florins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,563 Abetton florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Students do more community service than homework, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, the Super-Spud Cinematic Universe is breaking box office records, and there's more vermin than ever on the metro. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abetton's national animal is the Stallion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abetton is ranked 190,913th in the world and 36th in Greater Dienstad for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 26.35 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
