The Arab Democratic Republic of Sayf is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ali Al-Karim with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 5.155 billion Sayfis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. The average income tax rate is 57.2%.

The strong Sayfi economy, worth 346 trillion Dinars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,146 Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Ali Al-Karim goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, lending money has become a major liability, and reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sayf's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Sayf is ranked 74,492nd in the world and 49th in Eurth for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 162.62 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
