The Islamic Caliphate of Talibanada is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 668 million Talibanadians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of al-Atawah. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Talibanadian economy, worth 12.3 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,357 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Talibanadians believe manners maketh the leader, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talibanada's national animal is the camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Talibanada is ranked 86,520th in the world and 92nd in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,315.99 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
