The Federal Nordic Union of Aboveland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kaisla Saari with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 19.003 billion Abovians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vankkavalta. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,769 trillion turkkis a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,090 turkkis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. 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.

Aboveland is ranked 259,571st in the world and 189th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
