The Eternal Phantasmagoria of Darussalam is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Al-Qa'im of a Thousand Nights with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.939 billion Darussalamis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Al-Mada'in. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Darussalami economy, worth a remarkable 5,073 trillion dirhams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 282,795 dirhams, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,876,889 per year while the poor average 16,320, a ratio of 115 to 1.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, recognizing the Darussalami flag qualifies you for citizenship, and fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Darussalam's national animal is the peacock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Xenosufism.

Darussalam is ranked 2,004th in the world and 1st in Valkia for Highest Economic Output, with 5,073 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
