The People's Republic of Zakanda is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Declan Webster with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.36 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asina. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Zakandan economy, worth a remarkable 7,073 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 249,420 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, the best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers, the rich and poor vomit into separate bags, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. Crime is almost non-existent. 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 1,605th in the world and 29th in Europeia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.57 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
