A country within Africa was led by Prime Minister N'mani in the late 2010s. During this time, the country was recovering from a civil war, requiring efforts in rebuilding it. The country was located around Africa's coast.[2]

Sometime prior to 2015, the country had started to recover from a devastating civil war. The Prime Minister of the country, N'mani, had reluctantly hired Maverick Security Consulting, Inc. to aid in the reconstruction efforts, as he did not trust private military companies due to the stigma associated with them. However, their efforts, as well as his advisers, the will of a strong people, and himself managed to restore order within three years, in spite of old ethnic conflicts, the military squabbles, and the entrepreneurs. However, after order had been restored, the PMC Desperado attacked the country and murdered N'mani in order to ensure that Africa descended into war once again.


The country possessed a coastline, with one of its coastal cities featuring a river, high-rise buildings and a cathedral. In addition, this city also featured a railroad track on its outskirts that passed through an area composed of cliffs.

Behind the scenes

The country is the setting of Chapter R-00: Guard Duty in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It is never actually named, and even N'mani's limo's license plate simply calls it the "African Community." The flags on his limo, however, resembled those belonging to Biafra, which was a former African country before it was absorbed into the neighboring country of Nigeria. The Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Soundtrack titled the BGM for the prologue "Montenegro", which alongside Kevin Washington's later reference to an implied difficult operation in Montenegro that occurred earlier when explaining why Raiden needs to be briefed on the situation in Sukhumi, Abkhazia,[3] let to a misconception that the country was named Montenegro (when a codec conversation with Courtney revealed that Kevin was actually referring to an unrelated operation to the African one in the prologue).

One of the buildings in Africa had the sign "Queen Oleen Court" on top, which was a reference to the Queens Hospital and the Oleen Hospital in Snatcher.
