The African Republic of Mombombu is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Imamu Mgumbe with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.528 billion Mombombuans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malī. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mombombuan economy, worth a remarkable 5,095 trillion pulas a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 328,173 pulas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tax returns detail how many games of slots each citizen will be able to play with their refund, the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, Mombombu's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, and super-powered zombies parade through the streets of Malī. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mombombu's national animal is the zebra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholocism.

Mombombu is ranked 2,008th in the world and 1st in Africa for Highest Economic Output, with 5,095 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
