Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.034 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 tiny, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 7.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,336 trillion abarastan ducats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,375 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Abarastan is ranked 3,538th in Lazarus and 115,813th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -2 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
