The Gatekeeper of Abacathea is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by his highest lordship HRM Pip with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.522 billion Abacatheans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capronus. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient an Abacathean economy, worth a remarkable 1,368 trillion Acaths a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 130,065 Acaths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abacathea's national animal is the Viper Forest Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Incarnatism.

Abacathea is ranked 2,557th in the world and 16th in International Democratic Union for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 23,096.48 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
