The Zuper Zealous Zoologist of Zany Zanes is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Zenthos with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.956 billion Zany Zanesians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pop. The average income tax rate is 29.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Zany Zanesian economy, worth 273 trillion Z's a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 55,102 Z's, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zany Zanes's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zen.

Zany Zanes is ranked 157,087th in the world and 54th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Politically Free, scoring 31.73 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
