The Republic of Ab 6 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 1.289 billion Ab 6ians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ab 6ian economy, worth 82.4 trillion guilders 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, Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. 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 63,912 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, this year's comedy award has left mothers-in-law seething, and brain injury is seen as a desirable outcome rather than a side effect of contact sports. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ab 6's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ab 6 is ranked 120,974th in the world and 18th in The Axis of Evil for Highest Economic Output, with 82.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
