The Emirate of Suwq ar-Raqiq is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.693 billion Suwqis are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of As-Syd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The powerhouse Suwqi economy, worth 239 trillion Dirhams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 89,040 Dirhams, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 722,910 per year while the poor average 2,421, a ratio of 298 to 1.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, agricultural employees work for peanuts, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, and high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Suwq ar-Raqiq's national animal is the dromedary, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Suwq ar-Raqiq is ranked 192,746th in the world and 97th in The World Rearranged for Rudest Citizens, with 29.51 Insults Per Minute.
