The Zuper Zealous Zoologist of Zany Zanes is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Zenthos with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.842 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, well-organized 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 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Zany Zanesian economy, worth 209 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 Retail, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 54,482 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 135,820th in the world and 64th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.37 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
