Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.37 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.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 16.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,990 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 an impressive 114,617 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, military funding has been stripped back, and the Abarastanian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abarastan is ranked 4,256th in Lazarus and 140,528th in the world for Safest, scoring -133.927 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
