The Eternal Empire of Abanthia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Imperator Grey with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.523 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, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Abanthian economy, worth a remarkable 1,245 trillion Cruxes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 165,551 Cruxes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 913,812 per year while the poor average 15,154, a ratio of 60.3 to 1.

The newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Abanthia" on tails, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, and veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Abanthia's national animal is the Winter Hind, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sibber Imperialis.

Abanthia is ranked 3,139th in the world and 1st in ravana for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,012.75 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
