The Democratic Confederation of ABC is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Avis Axl with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.885 billion Alphas enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verum. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Alphasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,591 trillion Unoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,051 Unoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals, the military struggles with recruitment, and you can get married in sickness and in health but not internationally. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. ABC's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Alphrism.

ABC is ranked 235,037th in the world and 9,572nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 4.37 Obesity Rate.
