The Holy Islamic Caliphate of Sahriastan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Rajul min Alsihr with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.008 billion Prisoners 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Mecca and Sahriastan City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sahriastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,108 trillion Riyals 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. 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 amazing 276,493 Riyals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and believers who wear their faith on their sleeves make easy targets in hostile areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sahriastan's national animal is the Camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Wahhabism.

Sahriastan is ranked 67,084th in the world and 1,478th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 4.01 billion Capita.
