The Union of Northern African Sahara is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Rahim Akhter with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 15.033 billion Northern African Saharans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria Federal City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern African Saharan economy, worth a remarkable 4,602 trillion NAS Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 306,186 NAS Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rahim Akhter's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern African Sahara's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Secularism.

Northern African Sahara is ranked 318th in the world and 3rd in 10000 Islands for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 103.87 Effective Tax Rate.
