The Republic of Shaamistan of Karatol-Advenra is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Bashar Asad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.58 billion Shaamistanis 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 Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allepi. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaamistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,933 trillion Shaamistan Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 255,021 Shaamistan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, and it is mandatory for actors to exit stage left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karatol-Advenra's national animal is the Shaamistani Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shia Islam.

Karatol-Advenra is ranked 2,075th in the world and 53rd in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 197,927.52 Standard Monetary Units.
