OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.382 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 on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, cars are banned from built-up areas, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. 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 22nd in Lazarus and 698th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 308 Dawkins.
