The West Germanic settler state of Die Suid-Afrikaanse Ryk is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jansen van Jongbloed with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.128 billion Afrikaaners 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaapstad. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Afrikaner economy, worth 494 trillion Suid-Afrikaanse Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,389 Suid-Afrikaanse Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", tabloids coo over Jansen van Jongbloed's expected child, schoolchildren must pass a six-month Ethics and Safety Committee Assessment before they are allowed to mix baking soda and vinegar, and the study of medicine is popular throughout Die Suid-Afrikaanse Ryk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Die Suid-Afrikaanse Ryk's national animal is the Springbok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State-enforced atheism.

Die Suid-Afrikaanse Ryk is ranked 40,732nd in the world and 36th in Africa for Highest Economic Output, with 494 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
