Zaire (or Zaïre which is now called The Democratic Republic of the Congo) is a ocuntry in Sub-Saharan Africa. That is, the part of Africa that has decided that being underneath that crafty Dr. Sahara is a better idea than being on top of him. In 1996, shortly after the release of the movie Congo based on the writings of a very delirious Michael Bolton following an unfortunate Go-Kart accident in which an old woman's walker impaled an overweight Latin American general, Zaïre was renamed The Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1997. Zaire was a Belgian (Belgium) colony known as the Belgian Congo . Now Zaïre only exists in the metaphysical sense. Everyone calls it Zaire still.
edit Naming and some History
After being renamed, the old Zaïre faded into memory, until, one day, it emerged from the dunes of the Gobi Desert. It was immediately attacked by gun-wielding nomads known as the GILF, and subsequently returned to the hellish zone of former-names-of-third-world-countries (FNTWC).
Saddened by the situation that Zaïre had taken, Dr. Sahara immediately withdrew his monetary support to Al-Qaida. This resulted in an enraged Mr. T attacking the good doctor in his home in the Cayman Islands. However, from a nearby fountain in the luxurious home of Dr. Sahara, NOT IN Virgin Islands, Zaïre materialized again. Mr. T and his henchmen were immediately defeated and forced into retreat by the secret police and paramilitary militias that rose from Zaïre. It was from this moment that Zaïre was declared a country that would forever be loved, and war would be waged upon the wicked nation that had replaced it, "Congo."
To this very day, Zaïre and its Quasi-Marxist ghostly inhabitants operate from the Cayman Islands, hoping to depose the evil nation of Congo and rid the world of Dangers to The Regime, terrorism, cow tipping, back-to-school sales, the privatization of Social Security, the Department of Motor Vehicles, Reagan Economics, and BBC talk show hosts.
