The Federal Republic of Abslandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Executive Board with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, public floggings, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.843 billion Abslandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Abslandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,038 trillion AbsGov Corporation Vouchers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 444,033 AbsGov Corporation Vouchers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,811,281 per year while the poor average 29,209, a ratio of 96.2 to 1.

Pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Abslandia's national animal is the Koffing, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Abslandia is ranked 121,685th in the world and 61st in Novo Brasil for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 20.32 on the Hayek Index.
