The Republic of Eastern Botswana is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Belle Kiwosa with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.154 billion Eastern Botswanans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mufasa. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Eastern Botswanan economy, worth 120 trillion wikis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 56,148 wikis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People have become comfortably numb, to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Botswana's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Eastern Botswana is ranked 98,783rd in the world and 196th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Economic Output, with 120 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
