The Holiest Flavor of ABU AMMAR is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 38.325 billion ABU AMMARians 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paprika. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient ABU AMMARian economy, worth an astonishing 36,513 trillion corn chips 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 a breathtaking 952,743 corn chips, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,224,472 per year while the poor average 88,480, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

Soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, and the nation has declared war on all passing comets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. ABU AMMAR's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

ABU AMMAR is ranked 72,775th in the world and 1st in Holy Lands for Most Extreme, scoring 22.36 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
