The Democratic Republic of Aberforthton is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.016 billion Aberforthtonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Aberdeen. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Aberforthtonian economy, worth 50.5 trillion Stones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,672 Stones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office. Crime is totally unknown. Aberforthton's national animal is the Rainbow Shatting Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aberforthton is ranked 33,459th in the world and 1,009th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 145.72 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
