The Sultanate of Qurtuba is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 427 million Qurtubians 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qurtuba. The average income tax rate is 38.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Qurtubian economy, worth 39.5 trillion Qurtubs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 92,494 Qurtubs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Leader, robosexual marriages are increasingly common, and the moon's craters are more numerous every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qurtuba's national animal is the Solar Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
