postage stamps... or collectors' labels?
A high-value "set" of 16 topical stamps... issued in a variety of "souvenir sheets"...
disturbingly similar to productions of 'cinderellas' for non-existent countries,
portraying famous characters from literature, history, etc.
(see, for example, the Saint-Exupéry issues of
"Odessa", "Somalia", "St. Elena", "Uman"...)
Wikipedia lists the country's population at appx. 4.6 million.
