The Kingdom of SaudiArabia is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its national health service, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.678 billion Saudis 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jeddah. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving SaudiArabian economy, worth 135 trillion Dirhams a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 80,511 Dirhams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SaudiArabia's national animal is the Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

SaudiArabia is ranked 24,133rd in the world and 13th in Geopolity for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 5,095.19 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
