The Poets Light But Lamps of Dar es Saalam is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Julius Nyerere with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 17.987 billion Lamis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dodoma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Dar es Saalamian economy, worth a remarkable 5,166 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 287,249 Drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 957,657 per year while the poor average 64,150, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

The nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, and Julius Nyerere can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dar es Saalam's national animal is the Orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Dar es Saalam is ranked 243,303rd in the world and 9,510th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 0.92 Atheism Rate.
