The Temporary Dictatorship of Zekeinistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Temporary Dictator For Life Dauid Oved with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.142 billion Zekeinistanis 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 is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amashabul. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Zekeinistani economy, worth a remarkable 5,204 trillion Gold Tegs 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, broadly 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 368,011 Gold Tegs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, ten thousand Zekeinistani soldiers recently invaded a nation occupied by two senior citizens and a dachshund, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, and new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zekeinistan's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zekeinistan is ranked 3,079th in the world and 3rd in Confederacy of Layem for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 96.79 Effective Tax Rate.
