The Sultanate of Al-Dijaj is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sultan Abdul Fatih with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.593 billion Al-Dijajis 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nusantara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Al-Dijajian economy, worth a remarkable 1,455 trillion Sarsurs a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 405,050 Sarsurs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,174,789 per year while the poor average 39,363, a ratio of 55.2 to 1.

Foreigners are treated with great suspicion, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, when you fly on Air Al-Dijaj you win a seat or you die, and blind dates tend to result in bruised shins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Al-Dijaj's national animal is the Flying Camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Al-Dijaj is ranked 181,738th in the world and 7,017th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 14.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
