New Socialist South Africa

Population15.133 billion

LeaderPresident Zingiswa Losi


The Republic of New Socialist South Africa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Zingiswa Losi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.133 billion South Africans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tshwane. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped New Socialist South African economy, worth 658 trillion Rand a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 43,514 Rand, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and the horniness of the great-horned Springbok is considered a national priority. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Socialist South Africa's national animal is the Springbok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Socialist South Africa is ranked 187,148th in the world and 4th in North West Siberia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.68 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
