South African Legions

Population1.851 billion

LeaderGeneral Lucius Thomas


The Military Dictatorship of South African Legions is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by General Lucius Thomas with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.851 billion South Africans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Havencrest. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.0%.

The frighteningly efficient South African Legionsian economy, worth 265 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 143,494 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 794,684 per year while the poor average 13,040, a ratio of 60.9 to 1.

Crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis, and arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South African Legions's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

South African Legions is ranked 228,691st in the world and 9,448th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 61.05 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
