Sector VI (Also known as the League of Arab Nations) is a world political zone that consists of almost the entirety of the Arabian Peninsula and was formed both from the remnants of the Arab League as a bulwark against continued American military action in the Middle East. The League of Arab Nations lacks the centralist political unity of rival powers in the region with the political entity subsisting on the combined fears of foreign imperialism being imposed upon their soil.
The political sector grew rich from its highly successful sales of oil in the past before its peak in 2020, and a once booming weapons industry bettered only by the industrious output of Israel. However, much of the nation's wealth is of old money, and the economic strength of the sector has grown weak with the long reign of a whole generation of indecisive and conservative leaders whose refusal to reform has starved the sector dry. At many times, the sector remains afloat only through exporting its labour power and often foreign funding, particularly from the Union of Russian Republics, as one tool of antagonism against the United States' otherwise iron grip of the middle east.
In recent history the nation has fallen into a perpetual state of civil war, torn up between nationalist, monarchist, Islamist and anti-state revolutionaries alike, and the time for when the nation caves in to the chaos of brutal economic recession, or is swallowed up by the will of the people and their growing resistance movements is estimated by many to be within mere decades.
Whilst much larger and differently governed to the modern Sector VI, the Arab League was (officially) the past political personality of the modern sector. Its members in Northern Africa were swallowed up by the larger financial incentives offered by the New African Alliance with its free trade agreements and multiple advantages of the new African Capital currency. Whilst these nations aimed to remain members of the Arab League, even offering the possibility of incorporating the Arabia peninsula and the Middle East into the African Alliance, concentrated military activity within Iran forced the unified Arab nations to focus efforts inward. In such a delicate and hostile political environment, it was not long before autocracy quickly rose and took the reigns of government.
Intervention in the Middle East
The UAE has successfully been able to maintain a diverse economy centred around trade. Despite remaining one of the wealthiest states in the sector and its official capital the UAE has taken a backseat to Saudi Arabia in regional affairs, preferring to maintain trade links with other countries.
Surviving off of old oil reserves Saudi Arabia has sought to retain its historically dominant regional influence through expansion into the international banking sector and brute force. The conservative monarchy has continued to fund Islamist groups across the world allowing for its Wahabist ideology to remain dominant amongst the international Islamist movement, despite growing sectarian violence mainly centred in the Shiite Al-Hasa region.
Bahrain remains somewhat unstable due to frequent rebellions by its Shiite population against its elite Sunni ruling class.
Oman's identity as an Ibadi majority country and relative tolerance towards amongst other groups Shiites, Christians and Jews has rendered it to distance itself from the main sectors affairs.
Qatar's influence has dwindled due to the collapse of the oil market and failed interventions in North Africa.
Continued fighting amongst warlord factions has meant that Somalia is still an anarchic state, with the international community recognising the Mogadishu based Islamist government.
Yemen's Sunni government is largely seen as a puppet regime controlled by Saudi Arabia who retains several military bases there in order to quell potential Shia uprisings. As such it is more or less subservient to the Saudi government.
Foreign Tolerance Policy
Sustained through a state of fear of the invader, many nations have adopted extremely harsh foreign tolerance policies. Vis
Tolerance of those born with elemental powers varies from country to country within the Arab League. In Saudi Arabia, only members of the Royal Family are permitted to wield Elemental abilities, and relgious fear has been used to instill hatred of normal people being granted these gifts. All non-Royals are usually terminated when it is discovered that they possess a power. Whereas in the more liberal cities of the United Arab Emirates, peoples with elemental powers are frequently found employed in the private security industry. A failure to agree upon elemental tolerance laws has been a source of contention between member states since the establishment of the modern Arab League in 2037.
