The BIG MONEY of Moqib is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Emir Amir with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 971 million Moqibi are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doli. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The all-consuming Moqib economy, worth 91.4 trillion riyals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 94,144 riyals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 690,602 per year while the poor average 3,934, a ratio of 175 to 1.

Fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, a driving license is obtained not by passing a test but by passing a brown envelope, rural citizens live in terror of their local village constable, and the military is plagued with unethical researchers. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Moqib's national animal is the moo cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Moqib is ranked 32,100th in the world and 4th in Deep Storage for Most Extreme, scoring 32.84 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
