The People's Socialist Republic of Absolutus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 9.981 billion Absolutians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antro. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Absolutian economy, worth a remarkable 3,544 trillion Absolutian Stamps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 355,118 Absolutian Stamps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, skateparks can be found in every city, and Court TV ratings have skyrocketed now that executions are filmed on location. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Absolutus's national animal is the Toucan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Absolutus is ranked 78,316th in the world and 2nd in Independent Powers of the New Earth for Most Authoritarian, with 804.81 milliStalins.
