The Republic of Abarastan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.667 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, 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 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Abarastanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,778 trillion abarastan ducats a year, is highly 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 174,399 abarastan ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is totally unknown. Abarastan's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abarastan is ranked 1,517th in the world and 52nd in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 173.21 Quips Per Hour.
