The Emirate of Southwest Arabia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, devout population of 346 million Southwest Arabians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 25.2%.

The Southwest Arabian economy, worth 19.3 trillion Arabian Riyals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,777 Arabian Riyals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and SA-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southwest Arabia's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Southwest Arabia is ranked 213,812th in the world and 3,705th in Balder for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.41 crimes per hour.
