The Dictatorship of The Northeast Mashriq is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 382 million Northeast Mashriqians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 59.5%.
The strong Northeast Mashriqian economy, worth 18.2 trillion Dinars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 47,603 Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Northeast Mashriq's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
