The Theocratic Monarchy of Iudaeah is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by God-King David with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.031 billion Iudaeahians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Iudaeahian economy, worth 336 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, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, 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 83,466 Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, God-King David's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, and more and more people are signing up for the government party. 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, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iudaeah is ranked 33,654th in the world and 1,701st in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,170.98 Tourists Per Hour.
