The Voyages of Sindbad the Sailor is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.906 billion Sindbad the Sailorians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Public Transport. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.
Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Sindbad the Sailor's national animal is the Roc, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Dirham.
