The Republic of Abserdia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Great Cosmic Leader with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 13.413 billion Abserdians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankura. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abserdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,953 trillion Benjamins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 145,634 Benjamins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, the children of Abserdia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. 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 Celestialism.

Abserdia is ranked 21,757th in the world and 5th in Alyr for Most Secular, with 50.5 Atheism Rate.
