The Glorious Islamic Caliphates of Mushir Khayr ad-Din Barbarossa is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah Al ash-Sheikh with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, hatred of cheese, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.248 billion Amir al-Mu'minins are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of القدس الهبوط. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Barbarossarian economy, worth 922 trillion Akçes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 111,796 Akçes, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah Al ash-Sheikh's wardrobe, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, and old spellbooks are only useful as door-stops or toilet roll substitute. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mushir Khayr ad-Din Barbarossa's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Mushir Khayr ad-Din Barbarossa is ranked 43,621st in the world and 2,331st in Balder for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,131.11 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
