Dar es Saalam

Population16.259 billion


CurrencyGold Bars

The Peaceful Easy Feeling of Dar es Saalam is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Me with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.259 billion Lamis 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dodoma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dar es Saalamian economy, worth a remarkable 4,330 trillion Gold Bars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 266,343 Gold Bars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 862,179 per year while the poor average 62,132, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Dar es Saalam's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicsm.

Dar es Saalam is ranked 42,840th in the world and 1,904th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,635.47 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
