The Dawlat al-ʾIslāmiyyah of Lisbane is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Abu Bakr al-Meuccabuli with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.891 billion Muslims are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The enormous, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meuccabul. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Muslim economy, worth a remarkable 1,484 trillion Dinars a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 136,306 Dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 781,620 per year while the poor average 11,453, a ratio of 68.2 to 1.

The nation's endangered species are no longer endangered, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, Abu Bakr al-Meuccabuli's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, and most political debates are settled with fistfights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lisbane's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Salifist Islam.

Lisbane is ranked 10,663rd in the world and 3rd in Despotic Europe for Most Cultured, scoring 106 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
