South Africa-icon South Africaball

South Africaball, officially the Republic of South Africa, sometimes known as South Afringca, is a famous and rich countryball in southern Africa. South Africaball's favourite pastime is digging deep holes in its clay as it is full of valuable minerals like gold, platinum, manganese, chrome, iron, vanadium, and diamonds.

South Africaball is a member of the G20 (or Group of Twenty) group formed by the countryballs that have the 19 largest economies plus the EU-icon EU.

South Africaball is also a part of BRICS-icon BRICSbrick along with Brazil-icon Brazilball, Russia-icon Russiaball, India-icon Indiaball and China-icon Chinaball. South Africaball also plays cricket sports.


South Africaball has a long history but didn't write much down until recently although there is a lot of Khoisan-icon Khoisanball rock-art graffiti everywhere.

During the iron age, the civilization of Mapungubweball also existed and they traded with the east coast and built huge stone structures because they were bored and it would confuse future generations.

In the 15th Century, Portuguese Empire-icon Portugalball started looking for a shortcut to the far east and "found" the Cape, although it wasn't lost.

In the 16th Century, Dutch Empire-icon Dutchball needed a lay-over to India and started a veggie garden in the Cape. Some Huguenotballs arrived as well, escaping persecution in Europe. They were very good at making wine so were allowed in, irrelevant of their beliefs!

In the 17th Century, Dutch Empire-icon Dutchball decided to make it a colony and make of moneys a lot with trade.

In the 18th century when Dutch Empire-icon Dutchball clay was taken by Kingdom of France-icon Franceball, British Empire-icon UKball arrived uninvited and take over but not give of back to Dutchball when Franceball was defeated. This annoyed Dutchballs, who took their Huegnotball friends with and moved inland to become the Boerballs.

In the 19th Century, the Boerballs met the Zulu-icon Zuluball and other 8-icon 8balls and had a few hectic arguments. Orange Free State-icon Boerball would close their wagons into a circle, pray and then shoot all the Zulu-icon Zuluballs attacking. It seemed to work well. One of Zulu-icon Zuluball sons, Bantu-icon Ndebeleball, however, was causing his own havoc, chasing everyone around. Eventually Lesotho-icon Lesothoball hid in the mountains to escape all this nonsense. This is why Lesotho-icon Lesothoball now lies in the middle of South Africa, and why South Africaball looks like a donut.

In the late 19th Century, the Boerballs found gold and diamonds, and UK-icon UKball decided they needed to join the empire. UK-icon UKball brought British Raj-icon Indiaball and British Australia-icon Australia to help. This war is called the Anglo-Boer War. UK-icon UKball thought it was taking too long to defeat some uncouth farmers, so started burning down farms and put Orange Free State-icon Boerballs and 8-icon 8balls in concentration camps. The Orange Free State-icon Boerballs were finally made to agree that joining the empire was maybe a good idea.

Eventually, all the pieces became Union of South Africa-icon Union of South Africaball in 1909. UK-icon UKball then asked South Africaball to take Namibia-icon Namibiaball from German Empire-icon Germanyball in WW1. No one said anything about giving it back!

UKball asked South Africaball to again help in WW2 in saving Egypt-icon Egyptball from Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball. South Africaball also kicked Italian-Empire-icon Italyball's ass free of charge in Abyssinia-icon Ethiopiaball!

South Africaball finally gained full independence from UKball in 1960.

South Africaball is one of the few African countryballs that have never experienced a coup d'etat or entered a civil war after the decolonization process, in addition to regular elections being held for nearly a century.

South Africaball learnt some silly superiority ideas from UK-icon UKball, got it wrong and ruled by Apartheid (Racial segregation). Union of South Africa-icon Boerballs started acting like UK-icon UKballs and 8-icon 8balls were given their own Poland-icon countryballs to make living off of and were moved out of the cityballs in South Africaball which caused all the 8-icon 8balls to stop talking with each other and be excluded from the South African society.

This is the main reason that South Africaball suffers from multiple personality disorder today. South Africaball is in therapy for this problem.

South Africaball also used to enjoy crossing its neighbors' borders without permission, especially those of Angola-icon Angolaball, apparently to stop communism from spreading. USA-icon USAball financed this exercise through the CIA-icon CIAball "freedom outreach program".

South Africaball also interfered in Lesotho-icon Lesothoball when it became uppity and asked for more money for the water it dams and is used in Gauteng-icon Gautengball's heavy industry.

South Africaball was the first country in Africa to build nuclear weapons which were of the taken by Americaball for 'safekeeping'. The 2-icon 2ball's were of the very smart in South Africaball. It clandestinely tested two of them in the desert and then got caught by USA-icon USAball, who was wondering where the huge earthquakes came from, oops!, After all that fuss South Africaball voluntarily gave them up as they had become obsolete. South Africaballs nuclear weapons were replaced by the deadly Vuvuzela.

With the end of apartheid, everyone in South Africa has gained equal rights (although many still complain about it), but the country has also been plagued by corruption in recent years because of a certain person who became the country's president. There have been also multiple attacks on the country's white farmers.

Soutih Africaball also has become one of the richest African countries. Interestingly this attracts immigrant 8-icon 8balls, who are not very well received by the South Africans 8-icon 8balls.

In 2017, South Africaball can now into winnings in Miss Universe for the first time in 39 years thanks to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters. In 2019, South Africaball claimed its second crown in 3 years thanks to Zozibini Tunzi.

South Africaball also won the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japanball, beating Englandball in the final.

Other Clay

  • Robben Islandball: used be a colony for sick balls suffering from leprosy and then a prison for Mandela and his uppity 8balls, now touristic attraction with museums.
  • Marion Islandball: 2700km south east off the coast, where South Africaball conducts weather research and may have rented it out to Israelcube to test a nuclear weapon, oops.
    • Prince Edward Islandsball (no, not the Canadian Province): birthday present from Stepdad. very cold with penguins pooping everywhere.
  • SANAE 4: Research station in Antarcticaball.


South Africaball enjoys playing football (or Soccer for USA-icon USAball), rugby and cricket. South Africaball hates to lose against Australia-icon Australiaball and New Zealand-icon New Zealandball and will sulk for days on end. Sport is considered the main religion with Christianity. The Vuvuzela is used as a psychological weapon to annoy the opposing team into making mistakes. South Africaball hosted the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup as well as the 2010 FIFA World Cup. South Africaball also won the 1995, 2007 and 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Cycling has also become a favorite sport of South Africaball.

South Africaball also proud to be the home of the first African-registered professional road cycling team, NTT Pro Team (formerly Team Dimension Data).

South Africaballisms

  • “Now-Now" and "Just-Now" are totally valid concepts of time, if South Africaballs coming over for a beer "now-now", it could perhaps be arriving at Botswanaballs in five minutes. But if South Africaball is coming "just-now", Botswanaball could expect to wait 20 minutes or 30 or even 45. Just-now, darn it isn’t it obvious?!
  • "Babbelaas", You know that feeling after a heavy night out on the town? South Africaball offers a term that is far more descriptive of one's feeling of complete and utter uselessness!
  • "Eish!"  in everyday lingo, ”eish!” is a term that could best be described as an exclamation of light shock.
  • "Howzit!"  Howzit sort of shortens that to “How is it?”
  • "My Chinaball!" No, not the country. Your best friend is your Chinaball. Don't ask where it came from; just accept it and next time you see your best buddy Botswanaball, say, "Howzit, my Chinaball!"
  • "Gatvol!" Translated literally, this word means ”the hole is full.” Used as a term of absolute frustration, one is gatvol when one has had enough.
  • "Ja Nee" Translated, this means “Yes No” in Afrikaans. Yes, this is a paradox. No, it’s not seen as a contradiction in terms. South Africaball knows exactly what it means: So-so, Maybe.
  • "Ja-Well-No-Fine" Rolling off the tongue as one word, this phrase has taken on a sarcastic twist to mean that someone telling you something might be pretending to tell the truth, but actually the reality of the situation is the opposite.
  • "Ag Nee!" Translated from Afrikaans, it literally means "Oh No!" but is much more expressive. It is used when something goes horribly wrong, and even when one wants to display a little sympathy.
  • "Jassis" Pronounced "yussis", it is usually used to express shock, surprise and the occasional tinge of annoyance.
  • "Click click" A reference to the fact that many of its languages, such as Zulu and Xhosa, contain click consonants.
