The Hypothetical Emirate of Syriana is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.386 billion Syrianans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, 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 16.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Syrianan economy, worth a remarkable 2,638 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 161,026 Oils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 772,232 per year while the poor average 19,627, a ratio of 39.3 to 1.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Leader's most personal functions. 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 6,115th in the world and 4th in One big Island for Most Corrupt Governments, with 128.13 Kickbacks Per Hour.
