The Taklamakan Desert

The Barren Wastelands of The Taklamakan Desert is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Salih Hudayar with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.44 billion Taklamakans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ürümqi. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Taklamakan economy, worth a remarkable 1,124 trillion Yuan 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 253,246 Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

God-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater, the government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, and smiling in public is seen as criminally suspicious behaviour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Taklamakan Desert's national animal is the Camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

The Taklamakan Desert is ranked 7,569th in the world and 14th in Sonindia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,819.73 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
