The People's Republic of Zakanda is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Declan Webster with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.08 billion Zakandans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asina. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zakandan economy, worth a remarkable 7,476 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 248,568 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, and Prime Minister Declan Webster can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zakanda's national animal is the ocelot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zakanda is ranked 10,639th in the world and 78th in Europeia for Most Secular, with 93.12 Atheism Rate.
