The Asdian Empire of Dabberwocky is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Seventh Emperor Sten Nilsson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.978 billion Asdians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Märstrand. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Asdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,865 trillion Asdian Skäders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 267,372 Asdian Skäders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, children prefer to begin their day with push-ups rather than breakfast, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime is totally unknown. Dabberwocky's national animal is the Asdian Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of Asdia.

Dabberwocky is ranked 6,823rd in the world and 14th in The United Federations for Best Weather, with 264 Meters Of Sunlight.
