The Ongoing State of Absentia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by youse with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 45.933 billion Absentians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Middle of Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Absentian economy, worth an astonishing 25,356 trillion ergs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 552,041 ergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A CDW Federation Tourist Association survey has rated Absentia #1 for number twos, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime is totally unknown. Absentia's national animal is the cambot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Absentia is ranked 15,482nd in the world and 1st in CDW Federation for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 6,124.99 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
