The Kingdom of SaudiArabia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 491 million SaudiArabians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jeddah. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.1%.

The powerhouse SaudiArabian economy, worth 34.9 trillion Dirhams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 71,171 Dirhams, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 225,124 per year while the poor average 17,173, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, politicians are forced to vote with their party leaders, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. 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 Peregrine Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

SaudiArabia is ranked 26,325th in the world and 3rd in Geopolity for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 26.41 Missed References Per Hour.
