The Hypothetical Emirate of Syriana is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.83 billion Syrianans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damascus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Syrianan economy, worth a remarkable 3,133 trillion Oils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 175,767 Oils, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Teddy bears and pajamas have replaced briefcases and suits in Syriana's offices, acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts, burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, and white privilege is a real thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Syriana's national animal is the Camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Syriana is ranked 37,691st in the world and 8th in One big Island for Most Pro-Market, scoring 66.56 on the Rand Index.
