Time to Play "Name That Country"

In this country, the average worker earns 14 million dollars each month.

Can you name that country?

It's Zimbabwe. Yes, wage earners in this African nation are flush with cash. Unfortunately, these are Zimbabwean dollars, which aren't worth more than the paper they're printed on. Right now, 100,000 Zimbabwean dollars = only about $1 U.S.

Zimbabwe has the highest rate of inflation — nearly 1300 percent — for a country that is not at war. Unemployment? It stands at 80 percent.

All of this explains why the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority proudly declares: "Zimbabwe is unique!"
