The sixties were a decade of republics and revolution against colonial rule in Africa. But in Angolia the citizens were more interested in the cultural revolutions of the UK and the USA.In December 1965 Angolia offically adopted the Mini-skirt as the national dress.

The Angolian parliament responded to Alfonzo’s demands with this statement :
“Yes we are a bunch of Monkeys, but democratically elected monkeys from every species found in Angolia. We also note that Mr. Boohoohoo is banned from the casino for insisting on wearing sandals and running up a tab, which was still unpaid. We further note that all members of parliament are paid in Bananas, and that Mr. Boohoohoo might not feel so oppressed if he got ajob instead of just applying for endless student loans, and hanging around campus trying it on with first years.”

As in other countries foreign nationals flocked to support the revolutionary cause. However to a bad translation of the above situation the only revolutionaries who came to Angolia were two dozen vegans from San Francisco who thought they were liberating Banana’s. They formed the Banana Liberation Front (B.L.F).
