The Jamahiriya of South Asia Minor is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Commandante Skye Sinclair with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 16.575 billion Samis enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kylepolis. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving South Asia Minorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,401 trillion Hugs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 144,909 Hugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. South Asia Minor's national animal is the Friendly Grizzly Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Juche.
