The Republic of Aftarestan is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 922 million Aftaris enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Aftarestanian economy, worth 4.52 trillion Rials a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 4,907 Rials, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, homophobia is off the menu, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and the government is proud to report that ten percent of all tax revenue goes to funding suspected terrorist organizations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aftarestan's national animal is the Ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aftarestan is ranked 214,783rd in the world and 16th in Neu Anterra for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.66 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
