The Nomadic Peoples of African Bushman is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.131 billion African Bushmanians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Social Equality, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 37%. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.
Soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and gazelles are considered a delicacy. Crime is a problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. African Bushman's national animal is the gazelle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the cola bottle.
