The UIR is largely regarded currently as one of the primary instigators of the Second World War, when it invaded Syria. After the war, the UIR dissolved back into its original member states.
Much of the Islamic Republic's land consists of desert, and mountain ranges. Both the Tigress and Euphrates run through its Northern lands. It also rounds the Persian Gulf in the South, along the Arabian peninsula. It is one of the largest countries in terms of land, not incluindg the terriotrial possessions of other nations.
The UIR has an arid, hot climate, that reaches its height during the summer. Percipitation is very low throughout the entire Republic. There has been larger amounts of rainfall in the lands in the North.
Islam was the only religion that is allowed to be practiced in the UIR. All other religions were illegal, and were openly persecuted by the government, even if Islam was the minority. This lead to mass immigration to other nations, mostly Egypt and Rome.
The UIR's was a self described Islamic Republic, based on Sharia law. Aspects of religious law override laws of the state. The President held supreme authority in both religious and political affairs, and was the commander in chief of the military. Though the Constitution guarantees routine elections, elections were generally rigged, or there was no alternative. The Constiution, also defined Khalid Sayed as "President for Life".
The legislative body of the UIR was the High Religous Council. It consisted of representaitves from the many separate states throughout the Republic. The Council ratified treaties, and could dictate the national budget, though it could not do either without the approval of the President.
Judicial and Law Systems
The entire judiciary system was defined by Sharia law. Judcial courts were dominated by religious officials, and the President appointed judges. Courts were generally defined on the regional system, managed by the officials who govern them.
There were still punishments that resemble ancient Islamic tradition, such as beheading, or cutting off limbs as crimes. People were expected to conform the proper Islamic laws, and failure to conform to those laws was punished severely.
The UIR's military, known as the Holy Islamic Guard, was one of the most powerful in the region, being larger (but less advanced) than the Imperial Chinese Army, though not as large as the Egyptian Imperial Military. The President wass the Commander in Chief. There were bases chiefly along the borders.
The UIR's rheroric, and uncomprimising positions lead to strained relations. After withdrawing from the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty, repeated sanctions were placed on the UIR, which further strained relations. Its open desires to be a world power, on par, if not surperior to that of its rivals, did not help. Relations are worst between it an Egypt.
