The Unistani Republic of Levantin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Urabi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.928 billion Levantines 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tel Ayn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.9%.

The all-consuming Levantine economy, worth 328 trillion dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 112,106 dinars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 354,886 per year while the poor average 27,019, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

War criminals are given full state funerals, the secret service is working overtime to find anyone publishing unauthorized material about President Urabi, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, and Levantin is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Levantin's national animal is the murder hornet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity and Islam.

Levantin is ranked 98,907th in the world and 4,119th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 921.55 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
