The Humble Abyss

Population1.829 billion



The Republic of The Humble Abyss is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.829 billion Abyssians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abyssland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Humble Abyssian economy, worth 223 trillion uwus a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 122,180 uwus, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 362,680 per year while the poor average 32,292, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

There is something rotten in the state of The Humble Abyss, there's no representation without taxation, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Humble Abyss's national animal is the Furby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Humble Abyss is ranked 9,848th in the world and 247th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,969.95 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
