The Sultanate of Abzul is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 325 million Abzulians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fardjudos. The average income tax rate is 18.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Abzulian economy, worth 19.6 trillion abzulas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,399 abzulas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, all streets are privately owned toll roads, and aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Abzul's national animal is the cammel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abzul is ranked 73,364th in the world and 3,702nd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 51 on the Rand Index.
