The United States of Abdimped is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by elected officials with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.473 billion Abdimpedians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scranton. The average income tax rate is 44.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abdimpedian economy, worth 219 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 149,181 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Abdimped's national animal is the Pangolins, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Abdimped is ranked 22,506th in the world and 18th in Union of Allied States for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,089.91 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
