OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.524 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Equality and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The ABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. 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 3,590th in Lazarus and 111,828th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -23 on the Hayek Index.
