The Holy Empire of Qudrath is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Holy Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.008 billion Qudrathis 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makkah. The average income tax rate is 13.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Qudrathi economy, worth a remarkable 8,238 trillion Imperial Dinaars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 305,033 Imperial Dinaars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, glamping Qudrathis won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qudrath's national animal is the Imperial Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Islaam.

Qudrath is ranked 106,727th in the world and 18th in Asia for Most Extreme, scoring 18.76 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
