Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holiest Flavor of ABU AMMAR is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.705 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, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are 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 27,855 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 878,576 corn chips, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,072,292 per year while the poor average 114,132, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, the nation has been sent to bed early for unspecified naughtiness, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and ABU AMMARians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. 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 158th in the world and 1st in Holy Lands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 1,099.96 on the Hayek Index.
