The Democratic Republic of Abadong is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hans Niemenkratz with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.539 billion Abadongans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dongdingxing. The average income tax rate is 75.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Abadongan economy, worth 208 trillion Abadongan Zagerics a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,258 Abadongan Zagerics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, where there's smoke there's the Abadongan Forestry Department, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abadong's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Abadongan Violetism.

Abadong is ranked 17,302nd in the world and 488th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 269.26 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
