The Democratic Republic of Afreecan is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory vegetarianism, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 713 million Afreecanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 65.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Afreecanian economy, worth 1.21 trillion Cans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 1,694 Cans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronomers are flocking to Afreecan to take advantage of its clear night skies, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, newspapers print only headlines, and it is said that an Afreecanian woman's work is never done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Afreecan's national animal is the Gazelle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Afreecan is ranked 188,391st in the world and 150th in The Allied Republic for Least Corrupt Governments, with 84.87 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
