The Realm of Abdu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jamal with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.061 billion Abduans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jelkala. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abduan economy, worth 642 trillion bronze coins 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 158,097 bronze coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, and anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abdu's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is všenusko.

Abdu is ranked 242,381st in the world and 5th in Abgano for Most Pro-Market, scoring -55.11 on the Rand Index.
