The Emirate of Indusinbad is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, triple-decker prams, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.352 billion Indusinbadians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 38.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Indusinbadian economy, worth 313 trillion Minerupias 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Cheese 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 72,126 Minerupias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, and the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Indusinbad's national animal is the Eragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Indusinbad is ranked 94,981st in the world and 34th in Aurelius for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 71.52 Workforce Participation Rate.
