The Kritarchy of Ahlabush is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ahlabush LXX with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.127 billion Ahlabushis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahlabushopolis. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ahlabushian economy, worth 74.1 trillion Nacionushes 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 65,727 Nacionushes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, glassy-eyed Ahlabushian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ahlabush's national animal is the Lambdabudush, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ahlabush is ranked 155,850th in the world and 225th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.25 on the Rand Index.
