The Rogue Nation of Abstergo is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 426 million Templars are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.2%.

The very strong Templar economy, worth 26.1 trillion florins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 61,237 florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 219,813 per year while the poor average 12,224, a ratio of 18.0 to 1.

Dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, nine-year-olds' chat logs are scoured for evidence of radicalization, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Abstergo's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Abstergo is ranked 155,917th in the world and 8,538th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -4.47 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
