The Re-establishment of The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.867 billion Sunnis 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raqqa. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Sunnite economy, worth 59.6 trillion Islamic dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 12,244 Islamic dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, Sunni Islam has been named as The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham's national religion, sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham is ranked 24,125th in the world and 3rd in Changuu for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 74.34 Effective Tax Rate.
