The Nonsensical Absurdity of Abject Ludicrosity is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by an Empress with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, rum-swilling pirates, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.463 billion Abject Ludicrosities 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 prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cavtat. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Abjectly Ludicrous economy, worth 893 trillion Dabs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 138,257 Dabs, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, and the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Abjectly Ludicrous Colonial Thesaurus. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Abject Ludicrosity's national animal is the Forest Dormouse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Empress Worship.

Abject Ludicrosity is ranked 42,808th in the world and 187th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 100.21 on the Hayek Index.
