The Democratic Republic of Zanottilandia is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 952 million Zanottilandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zanottilandian economy, worth 89.6 trillion Zannottis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 94,123 Zannottis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Zanottilandian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Simone, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zanottilandia's national animal is the Simone, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zanottilandia is ranked 5,196th in the world and 153rd in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.07 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
