Uman wa-Zanjibar

Population1.833 billion



The United Socialist States of Uman wa-Zanjibar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.833 billion Uman wa-Zanjibarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Masqaṭ. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Uman wa-Zanjibarian economy, worth 43.5 trillion Riyals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 23,741 Riyals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto, and Uman wa-Zanjibar has designated Masqaṭ as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uman wa-Zanjibar's national animal is the Oryx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Uman wa-Zanjibar is ranked 48,241st in the world and 4th in Nordisches Kaiserreich for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 73.45 Workforce Participation Rate.
