The Sultanate of Umuyyad
“Lā ʾilāha ʾillā Llāh, Muḥammadan rasūlu Llāh”
|Category: Authoritarian Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Sultanate of Umuyyad is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 436 million Umuyyads are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Khaybar. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Umuyyad economy, worth 47.9 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,951 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There are no more heroes any more, top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umuyyad's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
