The Union of Northern African Sahara is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rahim Akhter with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.728 billion Northern African Saharans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, corrupt, 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 3,539 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 301,773 NAS Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ordinary soldiers trade rumors about the top secret "Death From Above" project, rural Northern African Saharans stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, the best spies are positively radiant after completing a big mission, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. 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 501st in the world and 13th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 98.86 on the Human Development Index.
