The Arab Republic of Sayf was founded in 1904 after the overthrowing of Sultan Abd Al-Sayfi by Tariq Qasim who reformed the country by implementing a temporary constitution which gave equal rights and freedom of speech to all, and economic reforms that allowed the nation to open up to the global market. Two years later on October 6th, 1906 the country experienced it's first democratic elections which elected the president Qasim, the man who led the coup against the Sultan and the parliamentary elections were also held with the National Democratic Party (Social Democrats) leading with the majority of the seats. Two years later, the country experienced a massive boost of wealth after the discovery of oil in the nation, the nation was previously poor and mostly consisted of fisherman and farmers but with the oil boom an influx of universities, schools, and new infrastructure projects were built along with the rapid industrialization and urbanization in  the country. In the mid 1950's the country began investing heavily in the manufacturing of general goods and exporting those goods as a means to diversify the economy along with the effort for the military funding locally based arms manufacturing companies which led to the extremely competitive Sayfi arms market. Marijuana was made legal in the country due to the massive amounts of illegal hashish production in the rural areas. In the 1970's militant groups in the rural areas prompted a new conscription law that enforces a mandatory 6-month time to be served in the military, with this law the Sayfi military was able to wipe out the militant groups by 1988. Since 1988, the country maintains it's conscription law but has been mainly conflict free, but former members of the military use their training to join paramilitary forces which are available to hire by anybody who many need them. The current president Ali Al-Karim was elected in 1996 and has been recently reelected for his 3rd term in 2014 due to his massive popularity among the people. He is the head of the National Democratic Party which holds 58% of the seats in parliament.
