Dar es Saalam

Population14.354 billion


CurrencyGold Almighty Dollar

The Peaceful Easy Feeling of Dar es Saalam is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Me with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.354 billion Lamis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dodoma. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dar es Saalamian economy, worth a remarkable 2,195 trillion Gold Almighty Dollars 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 Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 an impressive 152,927 Gold Almighty Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, the government is giving peace a chance, it is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dar es Saalam's national animal is the Orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicsm.

Dar es Saalam is ranked 3,627th in the world and 120th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,785.81 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
