The Saffron Golden Colony of Nouveau Yathrib is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, infamous sell-swords, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.12 billion Khuzifenqis 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Administration, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Khuzifenqi economy, worth 257 trillion francRiels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,062 francRiels, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Disputed territories across Khuzifenq are being claimed by Khuzifenqi college students, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, martial law has been declared and the populace is kept under tight control, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Nouveau Yathrib's national animal is the garuda starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Nouveau Yathrib is ranked 163,555th in the world and 20th in Khuzifenq for Least Corrupt Governments, with 54.25 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
