The Kingdom of SaudiArabia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 674 million Saudis 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jeddah. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.9%.

The powerhouse SaudiArabian economy, worth 52.1 trillion Dirhams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 77,263 Dirhams, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, a Geopolity Tourist Association survey has rated SaudiArabia #1 for number twos, schoolkids say that the air doesn't taste like wee-wee any more, and the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SaudiArabia's national animal is the Falcon.

SaudiArabia is ranked 143,173rd in the world and 59th in Geopolity for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 25.8 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
