Dhu al-Qarnayn

Population907 million


The Nomadic Peoples of Dhu al-Qarnayn is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 907 million Alexandrians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.

The Dhu al-Qarnaynian economy, worth 51.5 trillion talents a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,770 talents, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Dhu al-Qarnayn City, patriots insist that size does matter, chocolate in Dhu al-Qarnayn has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, and a milk bath costs more than bathing in money. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Dhu al-Qarnayn's national animal is the Bucephalus, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Dhu al-Qarnayn is ranked 192,670th in the world and 10th in The Empire of Nova Roma for Safest, scoring 38.51 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
