Unified Arab Emirates

The Federation of Unified Arab Emirates is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 144 million Emiratis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The all-consuming Emirati economy, worth 13.0 trillion Dirhams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 90,127 Dirhams, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 381,915 per year while the poor average 13,732, a ratio of 27.8 to 1.

It's said that Leader can turn every pleasure into a chore, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines, and children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unified Arab Emirates's national animal is the Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Unified Arab Emirates is ranked 144,822nd in the world and 75th in Iveagh for Nicest Citizens, with 0.81 Average Smiles Per Day.
