The Nonsensical Absurdity of Abject Ludicrosity is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by an Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, state-planned economy, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.108 billion Abject Ludicrosities are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cavtat. The average income tax rate is 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abjectly Ludicrous economy, worth 503 trillion Dabs 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Gambling. 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 122,579 Dabs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, the 3rd Airborne Beekeepers are the most feared regiment in the Abjectly Ludicrous military, the deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors, and it is said that an Abjectly Ludicrous woman's work is never done. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Abject Ludicrosity's national animal is the Forest Dormouse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Emperor Worship.

Abject Ludicrosity is ranked 58,704th in the world and 3,015th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,758.92 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
