The United Emirates of Diadochi is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Sultan with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 13.042 billion Emiratis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jeddah. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.0%.

The all-consuming Diadochian economy, worth a remarkable 1,129 trillion Diadochi Dirhams a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,571 Diadochi Dirhams, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cold medicines curiously become cheaper when government officials sneeze, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Jeddah, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Diadochi's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Diadochi is ranked 41,656th in the world and 22nd in Geopolity for Highest Average Incomes, with 86,571.87 Standard Monetary Units.
