The Golden Hasal Pharaoh of Anabelle I is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mahira Anabelle with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.115 billion Anabellians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jortun. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Anabelle Iian economy, worth 470 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 66,101 Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and the Anabelle I Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 151,327th in the world and 6,133rd in Osiris for Largest Black Market, with 127 billion Standard Monetary Units.
