The Dictatorship of Hafez al-Assad is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Mr Al-Assad with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.024 billion Hafez al-Assadians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Commerce and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damascus. The average income tax rate is 81%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and underground copulation clubs have sprung up in major cities. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Hafez al-Assad's national animal is the fly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the money.

Hafez al-Assad is ranked 1st in 000000000000000000000000000000000000000 and 94,016th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 32 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
