The Sultanate of Ramdam is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Sultan Amad III with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 836 million Ramdamians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holly Ramdamnya. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ramdamian economy, worth 106 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 127,336 Dinars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 823,866 per year while the poor average 7,897, a ratio of 104 to 1.

Women who display their ankles are shunned by society, prohibition has allowed a Maxtopian immigrant known only as "Nipples" to establish an illicit breast milk syndicate, fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace, and volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Ramdam has found 1 easter egg). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Ramdam's national animal is the Camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ramdam is ranked 244,293rd in the world and 451st in The Free Nations Region for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3.3 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
