The Dictatorship of Hafez al-Assad is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Mr Al-Assad with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.214 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.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, underground copulation clubs have sprung up in major cities, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. 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 11,734th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 176 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
