The Revolution of Arabya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ṣalāḥ al-Dīn with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 29.421 billion Arabyans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mekka. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Arabyan economy, worth a remarkable 2,355 trillion monies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 80,073 monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, it's entirely possible foreign diplomats misheard when Arabya offered the words "peace be upon you", and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Arabya's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Arabya is ranked 11,745th in the world and 45th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 86.25 Effective Tax Rate.
