The Islamic Empire of Adab is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Tizqar III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.723 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 1,633 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 152,295 shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, children asking questions about science are referred to relevant sections in religious texts, economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, and Adab's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives. 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 172,026th in the world and 7,881st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -24.7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
