The Rogue Nation of Abstergo is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 941 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 57.6 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 139,163rd in the world and 7,163rd in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 5.56 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
