The Sultanate of Al-Dijaj is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sultan Abdul Fatih with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.666 billion Al-Dijajis 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nusantara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Al-Dijajian economy, worth a remarkable 1,495 trillion Sarsurs a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 407,830 Sarsurs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,128,224 per year while the poor average 42,068, a ratio of 50.6 to 1.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, and planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Al-Dijaj's national animal is the Flying Camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Al-Dijaj is ranked 674th in the world and 16th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 1,651.4 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
