The People's Republic of Arabian Desert is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, national health service, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 34.307 billion Warriors are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Law & Order, with Public Transport, Environment, and Education also on the agenda, while Defense and Social Policy aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Arabian Desertian economy, worth 711 trillion gold grams a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 20,734 gold grams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An enormous health awareness programme is underway, skateparks can be found in every city, people of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', and closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arabian Desert's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arabian Desert is ranked 163,443rd in the world and 1st in Olives for Most Pro-Market, scoring -94.75 on the Rand Index.
