The Calabash Protectorate

Population1.763 billion

LeaderNkosi Zulu


The Dominion of The Calabash Protectorate is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nkosi Zulu with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.763 billion Calabash Protectorateans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vryheid. The average income tax rate is 37.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Calabash Protectoratean economy, worth 153 trillion Tiles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,834 Tiles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, and competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Calabash Protectorate's national animal is the Rhinoceros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Calabash Protectorate is ranked 167,559th in the world and 3,943rd in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 81.0 billion Standard Monetary Units.
