The Islamic Empire of Adab is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Tizqar III with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.281 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 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Adabian economy, worth a remarkable 2,203 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 154,311 shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and the Adab City Film Festival recently voted 'Adabian Getting Hit By Football' as best film. 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 80,027th in the world and 3,728th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,604.48 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
