The Republic of Far New Zum is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 257 million Zumians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Far New Zumian economy, worth 15.5 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 60,411 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Edutainment video games are taking Far New Zum's students to the next level, there's a bright dawn ahead for Far New Zum, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Far New Zum's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Far New Zum is ranked 85,309th in the world and 956th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,247.78 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
