The Dictatorship of Zanjact is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Thomas Za'nam with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, zero percent divorce rate, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.161 billion Zanjactians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zactias. The average income tax rate is 74.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Zanjactias economy, worth 283 trillion Zacjas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 244,437 Zacjas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's exceedingly polite children have often been referred to as "robots" by international media, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, the nation's water should not be ingested while operating heavy machinery, and the only place where one can see the Zanjactias cherry tree is in a museum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zanjact's national animal is the Jaguar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Zanjact is ranked 7,267th in the world and 4th in New Eastern Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 467,226 Standard Monetary Units.
