The Eternal Empire of Abanthia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Imperator Grey with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.289 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, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, 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 27.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Abanthian economy, worth a remarkable 1,196 trillion Cruxes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 164,128 Cruxes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 936,878 per year while the poor average 13,935, a ratio of 67.2 to 1.

People feel the most alone when among peers, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, the cancellation of "The Real Vixens of Dominus" has been described as a real blow for entertainment, and many Abanthians are their brothers' keepers. 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 205,237th in the world and 127th in ravana for Safest, scoring 5.68 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
