The Disputed Territories of Nordafrik Conclaves is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 940 million NordafrikšŠns are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akachi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nordafrik Conclavesian economy, worth 129 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 138,250 marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 566,261 per year while the poor average 22,315, a ratio of 25.4 to 1.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", and the government is forced to pander to the will of every fruitcake politician. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nordafrik Conclaves's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nordafrik Conclaves is ranked 42,064th in the world and 1,685th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70.56 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
