LeaderRajul min Alsihr


The Holy Islamic Caliphate of Sahriastan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rajul min Alsihr with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.262 billion Prisoners are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mecca and Sahriastan City. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sahriastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,186 trillion Riyals 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. 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 278,438 Riyals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, Prisoners believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, many are asking why the latest naval vessel is named after Saint Bartholomeus the Many Handed, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sahriastan's national animal is the Camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Wahhabism.

Sahriastan is ranked 25,793rd in the world and 1,020th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,506.4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
