The Failed Social Experiment of Absolutly Terrible is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Di Límon with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.956 billion Social Experiments are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 75.6%.

The frighteningly efficient human economy, worth 906 trillion Fines a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 306,518 Fines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, military spending recently hit a new high, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Absolutly Terrible's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Corruption.

Absolutly Terrible is ranked 885th in the world and 1st in THE RANDOM REGION 2 ELECTRIC BOOGALOO for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 356.8 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
