OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.512 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 on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Surveillance cameras are banned, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". 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 450th in Lazarus and 18,444th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 90 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
