The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.416 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,587 trillion abarastan ducats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,714 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Endangered bison are herded across the border to prevent them from trampling on native prairie grass, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime is totally unknown. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abarastan is ranked 202nd in the world and 7th in Osiris for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 225 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
