The Arab Republic of Puetavisa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emir Hannibal al-Sa'id with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.522 billion rafiqs 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tazadahara. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Puetavistan economy, worth a remarkable 1,062 trillion aldhiybs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 192,323 aldhiybs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Most rafiqs would sell their own grandmother, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, the new Really Big Telescope has been praised for presenting pictures of bright dots in unprecedented detail, and signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puetavisa's national animal is the camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Red Islamism.

Puetavisa is ranked 50,391st in the world and 10th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,028.99 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
