OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 14.709 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.

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.

The government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, Abarastan has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. 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 136th in Lazarus and 2,709th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 299 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
