The Medinaist Republic of Islamic Holy Sites is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sovereign Muhammad Mousavi with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, devout population of 2.229 billion Muqaddasis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Najaf City. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Muqaddasi economy, worth 182 trillion Gold Dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,914 Gold Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use New Najaf City as a backdrop, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, and museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Islamic Holy Sites's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shia Islam.

Islamic Holy Sites is ranked 243,520th in the world and 2nd in Global Entente of Nations and Alliances for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -9.17 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
