OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 13.405 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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 secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and the study of medicine is popular throughout Abarastan. 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 3,300th in Lazarus and 109,410th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -9 Whatever.
