The Greatest Empire of Qayyum is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by His Serene Majesty King ALBERT QAYYUM with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 777 million malays 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Britanland. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse melayu economy, worth 62.8 trillion ALBERT1s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,860 ALBERT1s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook, and foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qayyum's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Qayyum is ranked 20,776th in the world and 1,114th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 1.71 Stalins.
