The Liberation Army of Wadiiya is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Omar Abd-Abbas with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.24 billion Levantines are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damascus. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Wadiiyan economy, worth 166 trillion Wudiyan Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 39,320 Wudiyan Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, students everywhere have been despairing after the recent ban on video games, and male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wadiiya's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Wadiiya is ranked 176,323rd in the world and 227th in Greater Middle East for Most Pro-Market, scoring -72.38 on the Rand Index.
