The United Socialist States of Abyis is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.528 billion Abyisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Abyisian economy, worth 66.0 trillion marks 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 Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 43,164 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and Abyis has designated Abyis City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abyis's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
