The Republic of Shaamistan of Karatol-Advenra is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Bashar Asad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.342 billion Shaamistanis 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allepi. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Shaamistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,715 trillion Shaamistan Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 233,603 Shaamistan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karatol-Advenra's national animal is the Shaamistani Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shia Islam.

Karatol-Advenra is ranked 136,547th in the world and 5,707th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 632.07 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
