Republiek van Suid Afrika

Population11.333 billion

LeaderNicolaas Jacobus de Wet -Acting Governor


The Republic of Republiek van Suid Afrika is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Nicolaas Jacobus de Wet -Acting Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 11.333 billion Suid Afrikaanses have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Republiek van Suid Afrikan economy, worth 749 trillion ZARS a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 66,092 ZARS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Nicolaas Jacobus de Wet -Acting Governor is adamant that ponies aren't just for little girls, weather reports simply advise Suid Afrikaanses to 'look outside', tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and Republiek van Suid Afrika's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives. Crime is almost non-existent. Republiek van Suid Afrika's national animal is the Springbok, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Republiek van Suid Afrika is ranked 132,525th in the world and 2nd in Zuid Afrika for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -3.87 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
