The Most Holy and Transcendent Republic of Ethiopia is an eastern African nation. The citizens of this nation are also most holy and transcendent. Of all people on planet Earth, Ethiopians are the closest to achieving a state of god-like beings of pure energy. It is this quality that most distinguishes Ethiopian culture and politics. It is also for this reason that many around the world worship Ethiopians, groveling at their feet and sending annual tributes of grain and currency.
Ethiopians themselves arrived on earth via the comet Habisinianis, approximately 65 million years ago, and were responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs. To replace them they created white, black and yellow people and hoped that noone would notice what they had done.
In the most recent study by the IMF, Ethiopia has been listed as the most wealthy, prosperous country on the planet. Over a quarter of its annual GDP is spent on propping up the economies of Europe, Japan and the USA. The base wage of an Ethiopian worker is $750/hour, and not having dentures and botox is the equivelant of not washing your face with soap or brushing your teeth in other countries. In 2009 Ethiopia launches its Nubis7 space station, itself loaded with 57,000 Ethiopians, to aid in the colonisation of Mercury. (Only Ethiopians can withstand its heat).
By the year 2030 The Empress of Ethiopia has promised to remove ethiopia from the continent of Africa and shift it into the Indian Ocean, creating the newly formed "Ethiopianite Archipeligan Republic". Ethiopia is actually the best country to be known.
Ethiopia occupies the majority of the Horn of Africa. The land has both mountains and lowlands, divided by the Great Rift Valley. From the Great Rift Valley flows ancient primal energies which seep into the blood and soul of every Ethiopian. It is predicted the Great Ethiopian Transcendence will either be triggered by a seismic event which will cause a massive eruption of psychic energy emanating from the Great Rift, or alternatively, that no such unlikely thing will happen.
The capital city of Ethiopia is Addis Ababa, the name of which means Birthplace of the World . Addis Ababa is the most transcendent edenic city in the whole of human creation. Founded in 1879 by the most holy Emperor of Ethiopia on the steps of Mount Entoto, Click Click serves as a focal point of light and moral energy from which transcendence will be able to blossom and lift the Ethiopian people onto a new plane of existence at some future date.
To the north lies the historically important city of Gonder (alternatively Gondar, or less frequently, Gondor), a city of great power during ancient times that opposed Mordor in a series of wars during the Middle Period. These wars were immortalized by the J.R.R. Tolkien in a series of historical texts that became widely read in the latter half of the twentieth century.
In 1993, the people of the northern coast of Ethiopia fell into wickedness and evil. They seceded and formed the nation of Eritrea. The secession of Eritrea cut off Ethiopia from the ancestral lands in the sea. But this was but a trivial matter for the Ethiopians, a people so close to becoming gods.
edit The Ancient Powers
In 9000 BCE, four great powers ruled the domain of human affairs: Abyss, Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mu. These powers possessed advanced technologies, harnessing the powers of the sun and the sea. Alas, great wickedness fell upon all of these powers except Abyss. A great destructive war broke out over a matter which has long since become forgotten. Eventually, the power of the sun was unleashed upon all four lands, and they sank into the sea. The people of Atlantis settled in modern day Atlanta, a city of great evil and wickedness that has so far managed to evade multiple attempts to eradicate its existence. The people of Lemuria and Mu settled in modern day Latvia and Moldova respectively; though these people abandoned their wicked ways, they became immersed in banal tedious mediocrity which still exists in this present day. The people of Abyss, never having turned away from the path of the just, fled to the Horn of Africa and founded the great nation of Abyssinia, which would later become modern day Ethiopia.
edit The Axumite Kingdom
After the four ancient powers sunk into the sea, the people of Abyss soon came under the Axe effect, and the Axumite Kingdom was established during the first century CE. During the founding of the Axumite Kingdom, Most Holy Emperor Zoskales of Axum received a holy vision: a most beautiful woman appeared before him and told him of a time of great need, a time when she would need a private account into which she could temporarily transfer funds from her dead husband’s assets. Zoskales initiated a massive public program to achieve transcendence. Great spires were built around the capital city of Axum to focus the psychic and spiritual energy of Abyssinia. Soon, the people of Abyssinia developed great spiritual and mental capabilities, gaining a head start of at least several centuries over all other people in the race to achieve ascension into beings of pure energy. During Axum rule, the Abyssinians developed powers of prophecy and clairvoyance.
In the first few centuries of the common era, prophets and wise men from Eurasia, Eastasia, and Oceania flocked to Axum to receive the preserved wisdom of the ancient Abyss. In this way, the transcendence of the Abyssinians became known to all peoples of the world.
edit The Gond
For reasons unknown, the Axumite Kingdom came to pass. But a new power would soon arise in Abyssinia in the city of Gond
eor. Founded by the brothers Isilder and Anárion in the eleventh century, Gonder would continue with the ancient traditions of Abyss. The time of the rule of the Gond eor Kingdom came to be known as the Middle Period. During this time, Gond eor faced many perils, including constant threats of invasion from the nearby city of Mord eor, lead by Emperor Sauren. Throughout this dark time, Gond eor stood as a beacon of light and civilization.
Despite the warfare, the program to achieve complete transcendence continued. During this time, the forerunners of the present day Ethiopians gained the powers of empathy and telepathy.
edit Modernization and the Formation of the Most Holy and Transcendent Republic
Like the Axumite Kingom, the Gonder Kingdom also came to pass. The descendants of the ancient land of Abyss came into a state of disarray. European powers such as England and Italy made several incursions into Abyssinia in the late nineteenth century. However, these incursions were repelled. Eventually, Most Holy Emperor Menelik came to power and initiated a program for modernization and further transcendence. It was under the rule of Menelik that Abyssinia became the Most Holy and Transcendent Republic of Ethiopia. By 1900, Ethiopians had achieved the powers of telekinesis and astral projection.
Further progress toward a state of pure energy was made in the twentieth century and in 1930, Haile Selassie became the Most Holy and Transcendent Emperor. Selassie, with his infinite troves of transcendence and benevolence, exhibited god-like powers including the ability to move large objects with the force of his mind. Selassie was worshipped as a god by millions. Worship of Selassie was organized by the Rasta, non-Ethiopians who hoped that Selassie could lead them, along with the Ethiopians, to the path of most divine and holy transcendence. During the reign of Selassie, many came to Selassie to learn the ways of Abyss. In particular, thousands of Italians migrated to Ethiopia from 1935–1940 to learn the secrets of transcendence. They ended up preferring their own style of transcendence/getting above it all, which involved flying over the place in aircraft, and dropping bombs on the natives to get them closer to God; a high success rate was reported in this project.
edit Deviation and Resumption Upon the Path to Transcendence
The reign of Selassie brought Ethiopia closer to absolute complete transcendence than ever before. However, by 1974, Ethiopia once again fell into disarray. A civil war broke out between those who would lead the children of Abyss along the same path of wickedness that the people of Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mu had followed and those who sought the holy path. The war would last almost two decades. Finally, a peace agreement was brokered among the factional leaders of Ethiopia and the four horsemen of the apocolypse: War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death. The wicked settled in Eritrea, which became a separate nation. Those who had walked on the path of divine righteousness remained in Ethiopia. Despite the chaos, the people of Ethiopia moved further along the path of complete transcendence, gaining powers to talk with the dead and to alter space-time.
edit Military history
Ethiopia has along history of military defeats and European domination. Seriously, it kicked ass, apart from that time in 1867 when the British sent an army to the capital, burned it, and threw the Emperor Tewdros off a cliff, just because he took the British Legation hostage. But usually, Ethiopia kicked ass (as in 1898 against Italy).
Ethiopia has an elected assembly of 547 members. Seventeen times each year, the assembly, using powers of telepathy and empathy, creates a great collective hive mind. The hive mind, with the wisdom of ancient Abyss, makes most wise and just decisions. These decisions are implemented by the President and the Prime Minister using transcendent powers of telekinesis and the ability to alter the space-time continuum. This unique form of governing is considered one of the world’s most efficient. Also once a year, the whole group of government officials gets together and has a mass orgie, to help strengthen their government.
edit Political Parties
Two political parties dominate the Ethiopian legislature: the Universal Transcendentalist Democrats and the Holy Abyss Republicans. There are also many small minor parties. The Democrats believe in creating government programs that would assist others in achieving a path to ascendence. The Republicans are in favor of private transcendental efforts.
edit Administrative Divisions
Ethiopia is divided into twelve provinces (kebele, plural kebelekuna), three autonomous cities (dergue-bait), two regional popular complexes, a shopping centre, a margravate (saxeanhalt), a palatine peculier, four entertainment parks mainly for children, a soviet socialist oblast, and no less than 619 other divisions created when the All-Amharic Slightly Silly Party briefly held a quorum in the National Assembly in 1989 when because of the complex Ethiopian calendar no other parties were aware that parliament was in session.
As descendants of the people of Abyss, Ethiopians have many rich cultural traditions and customs. As the Ethiopians are millennia ahead of the rest of humanity in achieving a perfect state of absolute transcendence and transforming into beings of pure energy, many of these customs and traditions may seem alien and strange to non-transcendent foreigners.
The Ethiopians put up a front to hide and protect their holy status.
Many languages are spoken by present day Ethiopians. These languages are derived from Ancient Abyss, though some have influences from Ancient Atlantean, Mu, and Lemurian often referd to as Greek. The most popular languages are Amharic, oromifa, and Tigrigna. Only minds as powerful, disciplined, and transcendent as those of Ethiopians could ever hope to learn of these languages. It is hopeless for any foreigner to try to learn an Ethiopian language.
Telepathy is the most common form of communication. The Telephone may be used if the Telepathic lines are down. The most transcendent Ethiopians use Tel'an'ethiopic to communicate to each other. Needless to say, they are one step away from total illumination and immortality.
The early ancient language of the early caveman inhabitants of Ethiopia speak in several junctions of words created by rolling the front of your tongue to the top part of your mouth to make a click sound. Yet because the "Ferenji" tongue is not trained, only Ethiopians and certain chosen ones can pronouce the clicks correctly and speak the language. Many times the chosen ones are the native Africans with the occasional white Michael Jackson fan.
The national sport of the country is Soccer (football) in Habeshaland, about 30 kilometers from Click Click. It is sponsored every 20 years. It would have been once a year but does not happen because of the government's efforts to keep the illusion going. Nevertheless, the marathon goes on!
It is situated on Mt. Cthulu (This is an ancient word, so as stated before, only the chosen ones and the Ethiopians can properly pronounce it) where at least 200 people sign up for this event. However the average of 39 only make it to the top due to the number of deaths caused by the evil rebels from the north that hide deep within the mountain.
Once at the top, the Ethiopians get into their starting position and Sally Stuthers is rolled down the mountain. Hastily, the "athletes" run after her with all their might to hunt her down. This marathon is aired throughout the whole country as it is the only violent entertainment they get. Most of the runners die of a heart attack during the sprint as their holy mind cannot take much violent actions.
Once Sally Struthers is captured at the bottom, she is put in a cage until the next tournament. One year, the dictator Mengestu was so disappointed with the results that he himself killed Sally Struthers. As a result, he was banished for his actions and until then, an albino Eritrean dressed as Ms. Struthers replaced her for the marathon to continue.
After 20 years, when all of Ethiopia's income is put into the marathon, the 'Struthers Hunt' is started all over again.
If a foreigner were to win, he would be prized with the secrets to Telekinesis. But the Ethiopians were smart when they offered this, because everyone knows that Ethiopians run the fastest, as a result, no foreigner has won the race.
To average non-transcendent humans, Ethiopian music can either sound “exotic” or “overly dull.” This is because they only perceive Ethiopian music to have just 222 notes playing over and over again. In reality, Ethiopian scales cover multitudes of frequencies across various spectra imperceptible to the non-transcendent. In addition, Ethiopian rhythms may sound sporadic and chaotic, but in fact are extremely mathematical. Ethiopian rhythms constitute a language in and of themselves, and the entire tale of the Ethiopian Exodus can be told with only a pair of skin drums.
Ethiopian music depicts pre-transcendent Ethiopians receiving prophetic visions, resulting in heavy seizures. The rhythm has been decoded to be the tale of the First Transcendent, the Queen of Sheba; the extrasonic component is yet to be perceived by non-transcendent technology. What the non-transcendent may perceive as shoddy camerawork is in fact Ethiopians directly manipulating the image in the mind of the viewer. Note that the illusion of a destitute Ethiopia is preserved, save for a single slip when it is revealed that they are actually among the clouds.
Because Ethiopians have achieved the power to alter space-time, Ethiopian clocks and calendars are different from those used by the rest of non-transcendent humanity. The Ethiopian year starts on September 11, showing that the Date That Changed Everything was long prophesized beforehand by the Ethiopians.
Ethiopian 12-hour clock cycles do not begin at midnight or noon, but instead start at 6. High noon for outsiders is 6 o’ clock for the most transcendent and holy people of Ethiopia. When you say to someone, be here at 7 am european time, they'll always come at 1 pm. When you tell them to come 1 am though, they would arrive the next day at 1 pm. This is due to the foreigner's misconception of time, not the tardiness of the Ethiopian. Ethiopians are never tardy for any party.
Ethiopian food consists of grains and legumes which are high in transcendent psychic energy. Foremost of these is the grain teff, which is a species of lovegrass and gluten-free. Teff is ground into flour and made into injera, a tangy spongy etherial plane.
It is traditional to serve various types of stews with injera. These stews are made with berbere, a spice mixture which allows one to have transcendent prophetic visions.
Ethiopian food is traditionally eaten without the use of silverware or of hands. Instead, food is consumed using telekinesis.
One of the most transcendental meals is Genfo. Normally a breakfast item, it consists of eating a mountain containing a volcano and lava made of Kibe and Berbere.
The ancient spices used in these tribal concoctions, A.K.A food, generate psychic powers and some special spices like "Mikmita" able consumers to use telekinesis to transport from hut to hut.
Ethiopia is very well known throughout the world as the only nation whose people can live on a bag of rice for their entire lifetime. This is a very hard skill to master, but can be achieved through millennia of self control. That is why you will never see a fat Ethiopian. Ethiopians may be round sometimes and chunky-looking, but this is only to the untrained eye.
60% of the Ethiopian population are Christian. Many Ethiopians claim to be Christian; they claim this out of a false modesty. Ethiopians are the most transcendent and holy people on the planet; the most proper and true religion is to worship the Ethiopians.
Enoch the Ethiopian invented religion, writing, and transcendental meditation. In fact, Enoch is said to keep a record of every human being's deeds in the Book of Life. If you want to go to heaven, you better start worshiping Ethiopians. Even, and especially when, they are not even around. This Book of Life may be edited after reading the help section and the Intro.
edit Beta Israel
Ethiopia also used to have several alleged Jews, who were terribly hated by the rest of the Ethiopians. Since they were seen as evil vampires and werewolves of the night, the Ethiopians forced them to flee to mountainous areas, where they sat there like Gollum for thousands of years. They were seen as the lowest of all the classes in the Ethiopian hierarchy and were not allowed for a long time to be doctors, lawyers, or accountants. Nonetheless, these Ethiopian Jews term themselves Beta Israel, as they were Israel in the beta-testing stage. Following in King Solomons footsteps, they are seen as the first of the Jews to leave their Jewish land and come and colonize a far off realm in another part of the world, as their cousins later did to Europe. Like other Ethiopians, they are most transcendent and holy, possibly even more so than their Christian/Muslim counterparts, because unlike them they've got the Ark of the Covenant in Axum. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church would reveal the ark on camera, but are afraid that Carmen Sandiego would just steal it with a fleet of helicopters, as it would go well Vatican and the Dome of the Rock in her dining room.
Later, upon discovering their holiness, Israel kidnapped the entire Ethiopian Jewish population to exploit their powers for sinister Zionist plots. Upon arriving in Israel, the Ethiopian Jews were made Bar Mitzvah and are a major part of the Israeli army. Recently, documentaries and discoveries were made by a chain-smoking maniac, who is despised by the Israeli government and the rest of the Ethiopian Jews, that the Jews of Ethiopia are not as innocent as they look, and were in fact slave owners in Ethiopia, which changed the view of many Israeli's on their fellow Jews. Because the modern Jews in Israel wouldn't listen to their racist grandparents who came from Ethiopia when they advised them to refrain from intermarriage with sexy slaves and Sheban queens, the majority of the Ethiopian Jews in Israel now look like African Americans. Solomon no doubt would be proud of all the beautiful interracial booty this has created. A hundred percent of the Ethiopian Jews are enlisted in the Israeli army and are one of the many dedicated Zionists that are ruthless to Palestinians. On Israel's Next Top Model, an Ethiopian Jewish model was seen to be hostile and racist towards an Arab Israeli who was also on the reality TV show based on Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model; itself based on the ancient Israeli international beauty contest King Solomon's Next Top Concubine. The Ethiopian Jewish model, Mimi Tadessa, was heard calling the other model "a terrorist" and refused to use the same lipstick as her. The wise judges than demanded that they kiss and make up, which in this case wasn't a metaphor; after all the prohibitions on homosexuality in Deuteronomy clearly only apply to dudes.
edit Future Prospects
As descendants of the people of Abyss, the Ethiopians are the most spiritually advanced of all peoples. Within the next decades, they will all become beings of pure transcendent energy. All of us will welcome our new Ethiopian overlords.
For the past decade, the Ethiopian government has been embarking on Project Betalem97, which has seen the construction of 19 rocket powered subterranean boosters beneath the section of crust upon which Ethiopia lies. This, by 2020 will enable Ethiopia to remove itself from Earth and join the Comet Abisinisanis which is set to pass the earth on the same year, and the Ethiopians will return to their home world of Falana.
