The Sultanate of Umuyyad is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 441 million Umuyyads are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Khaybar. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Umuyyad economy, worth 48.7 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,361 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umuyyad's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Umuyyad is ranked 145,383rd in the world and 7,864th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.55 Obesity Rate.
