Lower Abbyalistelo

The Republic of Lower Abbyalistelo is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 930 million Abstelans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Abstelan economy, worth 90.8 trillion kronor 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 Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 97,669 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of kronor are being poured into a space program, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned craneball fields, the fate of the world literally rests on Leader's fingers, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Abbyalistelo's national animal is the crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lower Abbyalistelo is ranked 57,275th in the world and 782nd in The Communist Bloc for Most Cultured, scoring 70 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
