The Allied States of Afraka is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Head Councilman Keonte with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.428 billion Afrakans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thra. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Afrakan economy, worth 362 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,870 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The monarchy has adopted absolute primogeniture, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Afraka's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Baobab.

Afraka is ranked 10,907th in the world and 40th in The Free Nations Region for Most Developed, scoring 89.7 on the Human Development Index.
