The Democratic Republic of Kongoland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Thomas Masire with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.766 billion Kongolese are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Umpala. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kongo economy, worth 509 trillion dollars 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 135,257 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and being President Thomas Masire has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kongoland's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kongoland is ranked 240,229th in the world and 499th in The Leftist Assembly for Rudest Citizens, with 5.47 Insults Per Minute.
