Al Madhaa

Population2.264 billion

LeaderEmirah Zuhr bint Ghazi Al Shams


The Emirate of Al Madhaa is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emirah Zuhr bint Ghazi Al Shams with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.264 billion Madhaa'ins enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gu'la. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Madhaa'in economy, worth 204 trillion dhaa'ins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,483 dhaa'ins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's often a little nagging voice suggesting that parents aren't keeping their kids safe, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and feeling like a winner comes at a price. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Al Madhaa's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Al Madhaa is ranked 44,625th in the world and 2,150th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 62.78 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
