The Republic of Airtifae is a large, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 88 million Airtifaeans 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 minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The very strong Airtifaean economy, worth 5.02 trillion Dirhams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 57,064 Dirhams, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 292,539 per year while the poor average 6,103, a ratio of 47.9 to 1.

Cars are banned, Harry Potter books are banned, a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Airtifae's national animal is the Sea Turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Airtifae is ranked 6,543rd in the world and 6th in Africa for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,332.36 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
