East African Federation is the name of the proposed African federation of the five member states of the East African Community — Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda — into a single state, which is supposed to take place by 2013.

The GDP (PPP) by IMF estimate would be $131,772,000,000 USD and be the fourth largest in Africa and 55th in the world. The GDP per capita would be $1036 USD.
