The Caliphate of Syrakhstan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ayatollah Mahdavi with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.263 billion Syrakhstanis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgabhad. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The all-consuming Syrakhstanian economy, worth 771 trillion Shahis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 123,222 Shahis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 457,976 per year while the poor average 23,295, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Disaster victims are viewed with disdain, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and a government program is underway to revitalize Syrakhstan's beaches. 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, and its national religion is Islam.

Syrakhstan is ranked 50th in Audax and 33,234th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 5 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
