TRADE secretary Liam Fox has negotiated a superb trade deal with the previously unknown country of Mungotania, he has claimed.
The minister announced a deal worth “hundreds of billions” with the small but wealthy state, which does not appear on maps due to a desire to remain unspoilt by tourism.
Fox said: “Mungotania is rich thanks to its vast diamond mines but bad at farming and so is prepared to pay in excess of £100 for an ordinary British cabbage.
“Another excellent export opportunity is their love of British cars. For a Mungotanian the ultimate status symbol is a Ford Fiesta sitting proudly in their drive.
“Britain’s world-beating creative industries also stand to benefit. The top-grossing Mungotanian film in 2016 was Dad’s Army.
“I’ve grown to love the country during my tireless work there. I’ve been flying in daily from my luxury hotel in Miami but unfortunately I have no record of this because I lost all the ticket stubs for my Air Mungo flights.
“However I must warn that due to unusual tectonic plate activity in the region it is possible the entire country could vanish at any moment.”
