Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.41 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 relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 15.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,551 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 94,542 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, the government pours millions of abarastan ducats into rehabilitation programs annually, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. 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 11th in Lazarus and 332nd in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 15 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
