The Republic of New Zionia is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 196 million New Zionians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient New Zionian economy, worth 9.95 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,750 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

On-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in New Zionia, and museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Zionia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Zionia is ranked 10,219th in the world and 128th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.4 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
