The Socialist Republic of Asma Al-Assad is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.1 billion Asma Al-Assadians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damascus. The average income tax rate is 74%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and torture is illegal. Crime is totally unknown. Asma Al-Assad's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Pound.

Asma Al-Assad is ranked 14th in Syria and 93,056th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
