The Democratic Republic of Aboveland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Kaisla Saari with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.909 billion Abovians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vankkavalta. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,220 trillion yonders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,716 yonders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, there's a mortuary next to every Abovian restaurant, and anyone can get ahead in life if they want to. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aboveland's national animal is the arctic fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Aboveland is ranked 9,345th in the world and 4th in Nordic Lands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 7 Valid Endorsements.
