The Eternal Empire of Abanthia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Führer King Greyfeather with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.075 billion Abanthians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Rock. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Abanthian economy, worth 918 trillion Cruxes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,211 Cruxes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 678,931 per year while the poor average 20,813, a ratio of 32.6 to 1.

The nation has been sent to bed early for unspecified naughtiness, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, and citizens are now allowed to discuss whether Führer King Greyfeather is the greatest ruler ever or simply the greatest ruler of this generation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Abanthia's national animal is the Blood Potoo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of The Wing.

Abanthia is ranked 91,213th in the world and 9th in ravana for Most Armed, with 0.31 Weapons Per Person.
