The Ongoing State of Absentia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by youse with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 37.926 billion Absentians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Middle of Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 4.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Absentian economy, worth an astonishing 20,191 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, fairly diversified 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 532,379 ergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, Absentia recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Absentia, and they say that youse's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia. Crime is totally unknown. Absentia's national animal is the cambot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Absentia is ranked 139,032nd in the world and 1st in CDW Federation for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 59.85 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
