The Holy Empire of Qudrath is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Holy Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 29.871 billion Qudrathis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makkah. The average income tax rate is 10.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Qudrathi economy, worth an astonishing 10,026 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 335,654 Imperial Dinaars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Grazing lands are filled with cattle wearing odd-looking anti-pollution devices, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Islaam.

Qudrath is ranked 263,534th in the world and 33rd in Asia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -29.42 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
