The Humble Abyss

Population968 million



The Republic of The Humble Abyss is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 968 million Abyssians 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 is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abyssland. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Humble Abyssian economy, worth 105 trillion uwus a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 109,001 uwus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Humble Abyssian satellites can detect it, boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Humble Abyss's national animal is the Furby.

The Humble Abyss is ranked 11,060th in the world and 340th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 86.8 Atheism Rate.
