The Republic of Afriyie is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Oliver with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.288 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tamari City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Afriyiean economy, worth 425 trillion Afriyons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 185,976 Afriyons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 964,483 per year while the poor average 19,430, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and tabloids coo over President Oliver's expected child. 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 31,715th in the world and 1,422nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,666.49 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
