Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.204 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 tiny, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 11.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,586 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 97,886 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon.

Abarastan is ranked 9th in Lazarus and 294th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring 2,142 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
