Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.57 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.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,004 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 161,800 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abarastan is ranked 92,333rd in the world and 3,198th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 0.16 Stalins.
