The People's Republic of Absurd Land is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Kafka with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.155 billion Absurd Landians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kierkegaard. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Absurd Landian economy, worth 135 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,693 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Absurd Landian weed picker are way up, and the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Absurd Land's national animal is the Black Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Existentialism.
