The Caliphate of Ard al Islam is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Khalid Shah Durrani with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 5.47 billion Muslims are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madinah. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Islamic economy, worth 654 trillion Dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,651 Dinars, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Atheists on vacation find Islam's scriptures make useful doorstops, prodigal children celebrate as charitable bequests plummet, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, and violence is always the answer in Ard al Islam. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ard al Islam's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Ard al Islam is ranked 248,301st in the world and 1st in Organization of Islamic Cooperation for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -10 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
