OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.974 billion Abarastanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Abarastan's radio stations, graffiti graces every city's streets, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the abarastan ducat.

Abarastan is ranked 37th in Lazarus and 1,070th in the world for Best Weather, with 407 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
