The Sultanate of Arifiyyah is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sultan Arif Nazhim Shah with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.153 billion Arifians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medina Arif. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arifian economy, worth 129 trillion Arif Ringgits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,353 Arif Ringgits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arifiyyah's national animal is the Orangutan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Arifiyyah is ranked 94,970th in the world and 1,935th in the West Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 5.47 kickbacks per hour.
