The Holiest Flavor of ABU AMMAR is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.594 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 Industry also on the agenda, 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 28,807 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 883,824 corn chips, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,846,543 per year while the poor average 82,079, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and teenage fathers are forced to join the army. 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 25th in the world and 1st in Holy Lands for Fattest Citizens, with 99.15 Obesity Rate.
