The Republic of Lower Nubia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Bisharin with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.803 billion Lower Nubians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Napata. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lower Nubian economy, worth a remarkable 1,619 trillion Nubian dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 165,208 Nubian dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rare steaks seem even bluer now, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, and athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lower Nubia's national animal is the Nubian Ibex, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Coptic Orthodoxy.

Lower Nubia is ranked 4,772nd in the world and 4th in Africa for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.25 percentage of bribes refused.
