The Republic of Ard al Islam is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Abdul'Hakim Hashim with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, devout population of 4.053 billion Arabs are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Arabian economy, worth 464 trillion Riyals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,614 Riyals, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates, the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ard al Islam's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ard al Islam is ranked 137,204th in the world and 4th in Association of Islamic Nations for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
