The Sultanate of Royabad is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, devout population of 500 million Royabadis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royabad. The average income tax rate is 18.9%.

The Royabadi economy, worth 27.4 trillion paisas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,882 paisas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Royabad's new capital, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Royabad's national animal is the tiger.

Royabad is ranked 101,903rd in the world and 3,792nd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47.5 on the Rand Index.
