The Sultanate of Anabelle I is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mahira Anabelle with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.28 billion Anabellians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jourtun. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Anabelle Iian economy, worth 14.4 trillion Bells 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 6,332 Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Anabelle I, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Anabelle Iian lands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anabelle I's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Anabelle I is ranked 154,138th in the world and 5,001st in Osiris for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 228.02 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
