Abhazin

The Empire of Abhazin is a small, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 32 million Abhazinians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 37.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The weak Abhazinian economy, worth 911 billion Kershas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,482 Kershas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and tax assessment offices double as polling stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abhazin's national animal is the yellow-eyed ibis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Abhazin is ranked 159,283rd in the world and 52nd in Hiyamashu for Most Pro-Market, scoring 19 on the Rand Index.
