OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.216 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.

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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, students cut up leftover abarastan ducats during Arts and Crafts, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Abarastan's border. 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 83rd in Lazarus and 2,049th in the world for Safest, scoring 826.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
