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 renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.229 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, 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 28,426 trillion corn chips a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which 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 882,016 corn chips, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,758,620 per year while the poor average 84,837, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the government is spending billions of corn chips on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. ABU AMMAR's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

ABU AMMAR is ranked 169,646th in the world and 3rd in Holy Lands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -88.6 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
