OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.01 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.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax abarastan ducats each year, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Abarastan Blood Tithe, and Abarastan is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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 2,213th in Lazarus and 81,829th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.12 Stalins.
