LeaderShabaan al-Hamad


The Kingdom of Abadazad is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Shabaan al-Hamad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.023 billion Abadazadians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boomtown. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Abadazadian economy, worth 181 trillion Keys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 89,764 Keys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, Abadazad is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abadazad's national animal is the Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tuvuthos.

Abadazad is ranked 44,443rd in the world and 2,444th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,637.7 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
