The Federation of Unified Arab Emirates is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 527 million Emiratis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abu Dhabi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Emirati economy, worth 73.1 trillion Dirhams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,698 Dirhams, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 509,831 per year while the poor average 26,681, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

Mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Unified Arab Emirates's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Unified Arab Emirates is ranked 5,635th in the world and 3rd in Greater Middle East for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 509,831.59 Standard Monetary Units.
