The Holy Empire of Qudrath is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Holy Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.015 billion 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, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makkah. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and almost all of Qudrath's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qudrath's national animal is the Imperial Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Imperial Dinaar.

Qudrath is ranked 6th in Asia and 6,541st in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 6 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
