Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.183 billion Abarastanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 45.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,711 trillion abarastan ducats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,125 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, immigrant Bigtopians work themselves to the bone to support gold-plated Abarastanian pensions, schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, and students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abarastan is ranked 29,058th in the world and 1,111th in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 95.7 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
