OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.322 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 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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, the government is giving peace a chance, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. 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 34th in Lazarus and 1,158th in the world for Best Weather, with 413 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
