The Republic of ABM IS NOT A REAL STRAND is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-working population of 369 million Strandites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of UTAH ISN'T REAL EITHER. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Strandite economy, worth 37.8 trillion chimken nuggets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 102,548 chimken nuggets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ABM IS NOT A REAL STRAND's national animal is the axolotl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

ABM IS NOT A REAL STRAND is ranked 54,266th in the world and 1,688th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,849.12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
