The Islamic Empire of Adab is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Tizqar III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.612 billion Adabians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adab City. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Adabian economy, worth a remarkable 1,761 trillion shekels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,675 shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, Adab City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The North Pacific, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and children dream of becoming physicians and physicists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adab's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Adab is ranked 240,535th in the world and 9,402nd in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 3.46 Atheism Rate.
