The Caesarium of Abidawe is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Caesar Gianluigi Vespucci with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.465 billion Abidas are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orevito. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Abidæ economy, worth a remarkable 1,669 trillion Lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 176,360 Lire, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Abidawe's national animal is the Aigle Bicephælosio, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Neo-Catholicisme.

Abidawe is ranked 161,210th in the world and 73rd in Commonwealth Federation for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
