Niokolo Koba is an country set in Alliance, a world created byPhilippe Bondurand
Religion : Niokolo Koba is entirely animist. Ancestors may inhabit every living being from grass or insects to elephants (chiefs and holy people are suppose to reincarnate in elephants). Complex religious cleansing ceremonies are held each time that a living being is trampled or killed, so religion takes a lot of time for Kobans.
International : The Chief of Niokolo Koba, Ibrahima-Casimir Diatta, is entitled by the custom to represent the the people of Niokolo Koba in all international matters. Embassies from some countries have been established.
Cooperation : An appeal has been launched to all technological advenced nations of Alliance to launch development programs in Niokolo Koba. The following have yet been signed :

Politics : The assembly of adult of the town rules the local public affairs. All decisions are taken by consensus so the talkings occupy a long time. Every Thursday is spend talking about local affairs under the greatest baobab of the town.Every 1st Friday of the month, each town send a representative to participate in the Cercle talkings. each Cercle comprizes up to a hundred of towns, there are 50 cercles in Niokolo Koba. Decisions are also taken by consensus
Every three months, each Cercle send 2 representative to Dianamalary, The capital of Niokolo Koba where they stay in the National Assembly room as long as they need to reach a consensus agreement about national affairs. If someone leaves the room, he cannot reenter. This measure had to be taken to shorten the discussions
