The Dictatorship of Idi Amin Dada is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.687 billion Idi Amin Dadans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. The average income tax rate is 51%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Woodchip Exports.

Hippos are considered a delicacy, military spending is on the increase, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Idi Amin Dada's national animal is the Hippo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Uganda Pound.

Idi Amin Dada is ranked 143rd in North Africa and 106,992nd in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 20 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
