Independent South Africa

Population2.398 billion

LeaderDick Cheney


The Republic of Independent South Africa is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dick Cheney with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-working population of 2.398 billion South Africans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.2%.

The very strong South African economy, worth 130 trillion Rand a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 54,437 Rand, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 180,417 per year while the poor average 12,264, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Rioting and unrest sweep the nation, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, Independent South Africa has designated Pretoria as its capital city, and Dick Cheney has just been declared ruler of Independent South Africa in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Independent South Africa's national animal is the Springbok, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Independent South Africa is ranked 103,328th in the world and 40th in Union of Christian Nations for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.37 percentage of bribes refused.
