Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holiest Flavor of ABU AMMAR is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.849 billion ABU AMMARians 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.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 28,022 trillion corn chips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 879,849 corn chips, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,328,082 per year while the poor average 102,138, a ratio of 42.4 to 1.

The tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. ABU AMMAR's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

ABU AMMAR is ranked 9,113th in the world and 1st in Holy Lands for Most Extreme, scoring 35.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
