The African Republic of Mombombu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Imamu Mgumbe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.23 billion Mombombuans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malī. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mombombuan economy, worth a remarkable 7,008 trillion pulas a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 364,437 pulas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,142,852 per year while the poor average 89,044, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

The might of the entire Mombombuan Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, email killed the radio star, and organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mombombu's national animal is the zebra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholocism.

Mombombu is ranked 300,328th in the world and 205th in Africa for Most Cultured, scoring 35 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
