The Republic of Afriyie is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Oliver with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.612 billion Afriyieans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tamari City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Afriyiean economy, worth 544 trillion Afriyons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 208,388 Afriyons, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,103,526 per year while the poor average 20,850, a ratio of 52.9 to 1.

No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Kotokodogs' dominate wildlife preserves, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Afriyie, and a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Afriyie's national animal is the Kotoko, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Afriyie is ranked 6,171st in the world and 242nd in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 7,660.54 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
