The Emirate of Suwaya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Faisal Ammar Al Suwaya with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.669 billion Suwayans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porte of Khaleeji. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Suwayan economy, worth 394 trillion Bhahars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 147,704 Bhahars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 541,943 per year while the poor average 28,495, a ratio of 19.0 to 1.

Fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, governments opposing Suwaya are beset by rebels, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, and many in Suwaya are born in the purple. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Suwaya's national animal is the Havar Baboon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Suwaya is ranked 62,816th in the world and 88th in 21st Century Rome for Most Authoritarian, with 917.17 milliStalins.
