CurrencySilver Dollar

The Poets Light But Lamps of Dar es Saalam is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Saint Catherine of Siena with an even hand, and notable for its feral children, zero percent divorce rate, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 20.342 billion Lamis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dodoma. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dar es Saalamian economy, worth a remarkable 6,834 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 335,977 Silver Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

National park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Saint Catherine of Siena's desk, parents dread their examinations more than their children, and nation-building is the new national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dar es Saalam's national animal is the Orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Dar es Saalam is ranked 264,414th in the world and 13,654th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.57 crimes per hour.
