The Theocracy of Kingdom of Damascus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vaisilos V with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.205 billion Damascenes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damascus. The average income tax rate is 22.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Damascian economy, worth 199 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,374 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', Vaisilos V has just been declared ruler of Kingdom of Damascus in an international press conference, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of Damascus's national animal is the Syrian Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kingdom of Damascus is ranked 72,560th in the world and 1st in Athanasius for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,870.54 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
