The Liberation Army of Wadiiya is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Omar Abd-Abbas with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.198 billion Levantines 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damascus. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Wadiiyan economy, worth 138 trillion Wudiyan Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 32,887 Wudiyan Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, military spending is on the increase, noble feuds don't end until one side gets their point across, and curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wadiiya's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Wadiiya is ranked 32,391st in the world and 26th in Greater Middle East for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.67 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
