The People's Republic of Al-Khalifiya is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.261 billion Khalifiyans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khalifiya. The average income tax rate is 74.9%.

The Al-Khalifiyan economy, worth 201 trillion Zars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 47,239 Zars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, Hawk is one of the most popular forenames in Al-Khalifiya, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Al-Khalifiya's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Al-Khalifiya is ranked 77,159th in the world and 78th in Greater Middle East for Most Stationary, with 113.29827471128 Days.
