OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.136 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,738 trillion abarastan ducats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 180,907 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Abarastan's radio stations, and Abarastan is building an army to protect its overseas territories. Crime is totally unknown. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Abarastan is ranked 174th in Lazarus and 3,301st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 288 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
