The Enlightened Empire of Abyssal Phantasm is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Soma with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.51 billion Abyssal Phantasmians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysium. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abyssal Phantasmian economy, worth a remarkable 1,078 trillion Ultimas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 239,037 Ultimas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Abyssal Phantasm's national animal is the Divine Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Great Machine God Pantheon.

Abyssal Phantasm is ranked 2,538th in the world and 113th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 707.45 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
