The Union of Northern African Sahara is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rahim Akhter with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 12.638 billion Northern African Saharans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, corrupt 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 3,819 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 302,196 NAS Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and Rahim Akhter spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders. 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 234,597th in the world and 1,319th in 10000 Islands for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 15.5 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
