The Sublime Empire of Mahdah is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sultan Akkaynak Kahraman I with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.416 billion Mahdavians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Izzetiye. The average income tax rate is 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mahdavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,494 trillion Rials a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,676 Rials, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, and fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mahdah's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is God Flame.

Mahdah is ranked 118,736th in the world and 5,882nd in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 57.51 on the Human Development Index.
