The People's Republic of The Abkhaz is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 227 million Abkhazians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Abkhazian economy, worth 14.0 trillion Rubles 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 Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 61,535 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maths Professor Barbie is the most popular toy for boys and girls alike, it's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, and the nation leads The Communist Bloc in per capita stalking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Abkhaz's national animal is the Velociraptor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Abkhaz is ranked 206,215th in the world and 655th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -10.95 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
