Zaba Ana

Population1.022 billion


The Republic of Zaba Ana is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.022 billion Zaba Anans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The powerhouse Zaba Anan economy, worth 88.7 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 86,749 florins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 450,583 per year while the poor average 9,034, a ratio of 49.9 to 1.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, several inches are being added to first class seating, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, and new urban roads are threatening city parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zaba Ana's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zaba Ana is ranked 81,407th in the world and 3,924th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.37 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
