The Free Lands of Absovenia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kyoove Desei with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, smutty television, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.124 billion Absovenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Falens. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Absovenian economy, worth 80.0 trillion Absovenian Doesis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,132 Absovenian Doesis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Absovenia's national animal is the Absovenian Fennec Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Grecism.

Absovenia is ranked 202,057th in the world and 307th in Forest for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -81.84 on the Hayek Index.
