Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.799 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 minute, socially-minded, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 4.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,133 trillion abarastan ducats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,739 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. 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 4,311th in Lazarus and 146,041st in the world for Most Devout, scoring -301 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
