Hobrazia's economy is being restructured from one of a socialist model with high levels of state ownership to that of a corporatist model, with lesser public ownership but remaining with relatively high regulation. Hobrazia has a progressive income tax regime from 15% to 58%. Corporation tax is at 25% while VAT is 10% for basics and 20% for luxury goods. 

EducationEdit

Education in Hobrazia is divided into four states. The first is the nursery stage which children attend from ages 4 to 6. The second is the primary school stage from age 6 to 11 (Grades 1 to 6). Following that is the junior high school stage attended between the age of 12 and 15 (Grades 7 to 10) At 15 students have to select continuing with a specialised academic path or a professional one. This is the fourth stage and is done over three years (15-18). All schools (except some higher education ones) in Hobrazia are private but the Government runs a voucher system to fund each student's education.

Hobrazia has several well regarded universities (a relic from the communist era) Many of them are state owned but an increasing number of private ones are being opened. The best regarded universities are the Hobrazian School of Public Affairs, the Agrarian University of Muzalkaz, the University of Northern Stormereti, the University of Zargundia, and the Hobrazian Technical Institute.

HealthcareEdit

Hobrazia has a private based universal healthcare system. The government manages the national health insurance programs and pays for all citizens' healthcare which is received from private hospitals and physicians. The amount of public coverage received by a citizen depends on their annual income with low income citizens receiving 100% coverage while the highest earners get just about 25%.

DemographicsEdit

PopulationEdit

The population of Hobrazia is very homogenous with 89% of the population being Hobrazians. A large Malivian minority (7%) is found in the southern parts of the country. The rest are mostly Artanian immigrants of all ethnicities. The current population stands at 99.66 million citizens of the republic.

LanguageEdit

Hobrazians speak a unique language, called Hobrazian, which is a language isolate, meaning it is unrelated to any other language. Hobrazian uses its own alphabet, created during the Middle Ages. Although the letters of the Hobrazian alphabet largely follow the order of the Kalopian alphabet, the two alphabets seem to be unrelated.

ReligionEdit

Hobaism, a polytheistic nature religion, and the Hobrazian Orthodox Church, a Patriarchal branch of Hosianism, were once Hobrazian state religions, to which the majority of the population adheres. There are also small populations of Luthorans in the north such as the members of the Church of Muzalkaz and practitioners of Geraja in the south (comprised mostly of Malivian expatriates). Hobrazia is also home to a sizable atheistic/agnostic community. The Hobrazian Monarchist Party officially banned religion from Hobrazia.

EthnicityEdit

Hobbs

A Hobrazian family

The Hobrazian Republic is largely homogeneous in its ethnic makeup though liberal immigration laws have given rise to a few minority groups. Most of the population is formed of ethnic Hobrazians. The modern Hobrazian ethnic makeup was created by the merger of two tribes, the Hobratz and the Zargunians. The latter were the descendants of Deltarians, coming from modern Deltaria, and most Hobrazians therefore view Deltarians as their genetic cousins. 

Foreign AffairsEdit

Hobrazia is a member of the Artanian Union, having joined the organisation in March 3489. Hobrazians are pro-Artania and a good number of the support Artanian federalism. Hobrazia keeps a close eye on the treatment of Hobrazians in the diaspora and is always ready to intervene to ensure their security and safety. The Imperial Republic of Hobrazia was a member of the Axis Agreement and the Treaty Against the New World Order, until the Capitalist Party of Hobrazia Government withdrew from the arrangement.  Hobrazia was also once a member of the Alliance of Terran Republics, and a close ally of Gaduridos.
