The Caliphate of Besbequistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ahmed Al-Hazai Bagdadi with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.352 billion Besbekhs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madinat Alkabab Altafjir. The average income tax rate is 59.2%.

The strong Besbequistani economy, worth 90.3 trillion medinas a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 66,825 medinas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Strange men lingering in offices distributing television sets is a basis for a system of government, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, and former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Besbequistan's national animal is the goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Besbequistan is ranked 36,339th in the world and 11th in Council of Islamic States for Most Extreme, scoring 27.38 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
