The Dictatorship of Moral Absolutism Inc is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its frequent executions and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 317 million Moral Absolutists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Industry and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 16.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Morally Absolute economy, worth 12.8 trillion love-hate relationships a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,405 love-hate relationships, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Moral Absolutism Inc's national animal is the hollow men.

Moral Absolutism Inc is ranked 131,874th in the world and 8th in Vietnam for Rudest Citizens, with 29.14 Insults Per Minute.
