African rift union

Population558 million


The Republic of African rift union is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 558 million African rift unionians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.9%.

The frighteningly efficient African rift unionian economy, worth 57.0 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,236 Golds, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. African rift union's national animal is the Okampi.

African rift union is ranked 44,172nd in the world and 1,892nd in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.38 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
