The Nonsensical Absurdity of Abject Ludicrosity is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by an Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.35 billion Abject Ludicrosities 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 prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cavtat. The average income tax rate is 8.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abjectly Ludicrous economy, worth 407 trillion Dabs 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Gambling. 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 121,529 Dabs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, the 3rd Airborne Beekeepers are the most feared regiment in the Abjectly Ludicrous military, the deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors, and it is said that an Abjectly Ludicrous woman's work is never done. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Abject Ludicrosity's national animal is the Forest Dormouse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Emperor Worship.

Abject Ludicrosity is ranked 14,070th in the world and 506th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 7,309.53 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
