Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Qudrath is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Holy Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.906 billion Qudrathis 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makkah. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Qudrathi economy, worth a remarkable 5,626 trillion Imperial Dinaars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 256,838 Imperial Dinaars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qudrath's national animal is the Imperial Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Qudrath is ranked 20,725th in the world and 1,087th in Balder for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,556.63 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
