The Glorious Islamic Caliphates of Mushir Khayr ad-Din Barbarossa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah Al ash-Sheikh with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.089 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 54.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Barbarossarian economy, worth 779 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 109,955 Akçes, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, there's a mortuary next to every Barbarossarian restaurant, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. 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 175,253rd in the world and 557th in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -30.85 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
