The Jekkani Sultanate of Pigslam is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.059 billion Pigslims 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.7%.

The strong Pigslamian economy, worth 140 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 68,287 Dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,338 per year while the poor average 11,805, a ratio of 22.7 to 1.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, army rations are served on silver platters, and prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Pigslam's national animal is the Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pigslam is ranked 45,283rd in the world and 1,490th in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
