The Ongoing State of Absentia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by youse with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 40.24 billion Absentians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Middle of Nowhere. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Absentian economy, worth an astonishing 22,445 trillion ergs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 557,796 ergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to youse's wardrobe, and tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments. Crime is totally unknown. Absentia's national animal is the cambot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Absentia is ranked 1,476th in the world and 1st in CDW Federation for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,917.25 tourists per hour.
