Sindbad the Sailor

Population16.657 billion


The Voyages of Sindbad the Sailor is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.657 billion Sindbad the Sailorians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sindbad the Sailorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,961 trillion Dirhams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 177,772 Dirhams, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 820,206 per year while the poor average 23,290, a ratio of 35.2 to 1.

Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sindbad the Sailor's national animal is the Roc, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sindbad the Sailor is ranked 1,292nd in the world and 2nd in The Featured Region Followers for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 20,353.36 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
