The Republic of Abserdia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Space Sheep with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 10.3 billion Abserdians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Space. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abserdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,531 trillion Benjamins 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 148,722 Benjamins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and it's said that Space Sheep can turn every pleasure into a chore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abserdia's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Space Cult.

Abserdia is ranked 6,636th in the world and 4th in Alyr for Most Inclusive, scoring 202.32 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
