The Democratic Republic of Aljamahiria is a huge, genial nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 264 million Aljamahirians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Aljamahirian economy, worth 4.11 trillion dinars 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 15,550 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and the government pours millions of dinars into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aljamahiria's national animal is the Arabian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aljamahiria is ranked 166,845th in the world and 142nd in The Western Isles for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -6.48 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
