The Republic of Shaamistan of Karatol-Advenra is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bashar Asad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.352 billion Shaamistanis 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allepi. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaamistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,726 trillion Shaamistan Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 234,824 Shaamistan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, everyone apparently sends Bashar Asad hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, and drug-related crimes carry the death penalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karatol-Advenra's national animal is the Shaamistani Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shia Islam.

Karatol-Advenra is ranked 254,239th in the world and 9,573rd in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 18.94 percentage of bribes refused.
