Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of Hafez al-Assad is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mr Al-Assad with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.584 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 1,823 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 42,948th in the world and 3rd in Poland for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 66.29 Effective Tax Rate.
