Dar es Saalam

Population16.724 billion


CurrencyGold Bars

The Peaceful Easy Feeling of Dar es Saalam is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Me with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.724 billion Lamis are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dodoma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dar es Saalamian economy, worth a remarkable 4,596 trillion Gold Bars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 274,821 Gold Bars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 917,749 per year while the poor average 61,223, a ratio of 15.0 to 1.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dar es Saalam's national animal is the Orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicsm.

Dar es Saalam is ranked 88,254th in the world and 3,870th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,122.01 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
