African rift union

The Republic of African rift union is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.094 billion African rift unionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.4%.

The frighteningly efficient African rift unionian economy, worth 164 trillion Golds 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. 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 an impressive 150,131 Golds, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and interest in globalism never flags. 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, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

African rift union is ranked 17,938th in the world and 388th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,539.73 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
