The United Emirates of Diadochi is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sheikh Sultan Al-Subaai with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 11.436 billion Emiratis 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jeddah. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.2%.

The all-consuming Diadochian economy, worth 878 trillion Diadochi Dirhams a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 76,836 Diadochi Dirhams, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Diadochi's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Diadochi is ranked 70,597th in the world and 22nd in Geopolity for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,142.97 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
