The Union of Northern African Sahara is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rahim Akhter with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 14.032 billion Northern African Saharans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria Federal City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern African Saharan economy, worth a remarkable 4,283 trillion NAS Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 305,288 NAS Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Northern African Sahara after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern African Sahara's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Secularism.

Northern African Sahara is ranked 267,661st in the world and 1,313th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -35.77 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
