The Theocratic Monarchy of Iudaeah is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by God-King David with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, zero percent divorce rate, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.588 billion Iudaeahians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Iudaeahian economy, worth 202 trillion Shekels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,144 Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iudaeah's national animal is the Upupa epops.

Iudaeah is ranked 200,467th in the world and 9,585th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.17 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
