The Humble Abyss

Population929 million



The Republic of The Humble Abyss is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 929 million Abyssians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abyssland. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Humble Abyssian economy, worth 100 trillion uwus a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,436 uwus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Humble Abyss's national animal is the Furby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Humble Abyss is ranked 4,823rd in the world and 150th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.17 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
