The Enlightened Empire of Abyssal Phantasm is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Soma with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-working population of 1.848 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysium. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abyssal Phantasmian economy, worth 346 trillion Ultimas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 187,490 Ultimas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abyssal Phantasm's national animal is the Divine Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Great Machine God Pantheon.

Abyssal Phantasm is ranked 58,030th in the world and 1,970th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,447.09 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
