The Caliphate of Kinistian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Caliph Abdul Baari Nassif with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 11.698 billion Kinistianians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haq. The average income tax rate is 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kinistianian economy, worth 893 trillion Jewels 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. 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 76,339 Jewels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Haq for fear of causing a fuss, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kinistian's national animal is the Camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Kinistian is ranked 26,247th in the world and 832nd in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
