Population7.192 billion



The People's Republic of Zankioa is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.192 billion Zankioans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zankio. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zankioan economy, worth 906 trillion Fenexes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,083 Fenexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, going on a diet invalidates your passport, and the tightness of border controls in Zankioa leave a little to be desired. Crime is totally unknown. Zankioa's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zankioa is ranked 42,815th in the world and 2,326th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,219.38 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
