The Caliphate of Syrakhstan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ayatollah Mahdavi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.807 billion Syrakhstanis are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business 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 Asgabhad. The average income tax rate is 96%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the country is preparing for war. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Syrakhstan's national animal is the Persian Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Islam, and its currency is the Shahi.

Syrakhstan is ranked 52nd in Audax and 97,852nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
