Abu Dujmahn

Population248 million


The Emirate of Abu Dujmahn is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 248 million Abu Dujmahnians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.2%.

The powerhouse Abu Dujmahnian economy, worth 18.8 trillion dirhams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 75,636 dirhams, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 300,006 per year while the poor average 12,877, a ratio of 23.3 to 1.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, and immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Abu Dujmahn's national animal is the giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Abu Dujmahn is ranked 87,683rd in the world and 3,343rd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 10.29 Obesity Rate.
