The Republic of The Sahrawi Arabs is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic population of 279 million Sahrawis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 15.7%.

The very strong Sahrawi economy, worth 15.0 trillion Sahrawi Pesetas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 53,660 Sahrawi Pesetas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in The Sahrawi Arabs City for fear of causing a fuss, children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Sahrawi Arabs's national animal is the Camel, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Sahrawi Arabs is ranked 80,874th in the world and 53rd in Africa for Most Developed, scoring 58.73 on the Human Development Index.
