|Leader||The Old Man|
|Faith||The Order of Assassins|
The Nizari Ismaili State of Hashishin is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Old Man with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.639 billion Assassins are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alamut Castle. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Hashishinian economy, worth 149 trillion Daggers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 56,727 Daggers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Hashishin's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Order of Assassins.
