AnimalEurasian reindeer

The Caspian Commonwealth of Dabarastan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Maŭsa Muhadow with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.014 billion Dabarastanis are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krasnovodsk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dabarastani economy, worth 635 trillion manats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 315,604 manats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 923,349 per year while the poor average 85,138, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Glamping Dabarastanis won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, and it's best to decline if Maŭsa Muhadow offers to buy a round of drinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dabarastan's national animal is the Eurasian reindeer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dabarastan is ranked 5,246th in the world and 317th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.39 on the Human Development Index.
