** At one point, Creator/JamesEarlJones remarked on how his royal marriage had been arranged. So the codified Zamundan monarchy went back at least three generations. That means Zamunda was a monarchy at least as far back as the end of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. Once the [[UsefulNotes/TurksWithTroops Ottoman Empire]] royalty was broken, old-style monarchy slowly disappeared from DarkestAfrica. But in this world, Zamunda not only survived amongst post-colonial dictatorships and nascent plutocracies, it flourished. And it retained a strict [[StandardRoyalCourt European-style royal court]], which held real power. Arsenio Hall may be a bit of a UpperClassTwit and a RightHandHottie, but he expects to be the right hand of the king of an entire country. That's some [[TheBorgias Borgia-level]] shit.

*** Oddly enough, Cleo is too. Strange for someone who grew up very poor and employs many of the same.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: This film dates itself to the late 1980s with its depiction of Pre-Giuliani NYC, its fashion, its soundtrack, describing Mike Tyson as a "new boy" in boxing, and the presence of the original World Trade Center (Twin Towers) in the skyline.
