Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.568 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,502 trillion abarastan ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,289 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, the wreckages of bombed planes that litter Abarastan are highly popular tourist destinations, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Abarastan City to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abarastan is ranked 148,008th in the world and 4,693rd in Lazarus for Most Devout, with 3.87 Prayers Per Hour.
