Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.024 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.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,601 trillion abarastan ducats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,318 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abarastan is ranked 160th in the world and 6th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.57 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
