Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of Hafez al-Assad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Al-Assad with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.973 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damascus. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hafez al-Assadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,735 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 144,927 monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

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 a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hafez al-Assad's national animal is the fly, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hafez al-Assad is ranked 41,224th in the world and 4th in Poland for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,004.45 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
