The Free Union of Zeklandia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zeklandia the Great with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.612 billion Zeklandren are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seklanden. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeklandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,892 trillion National Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 162,963 National Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, all the playground's a stage for Zeklandian schoolchildren, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeklandia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zeklandia is ranked 207,374th in the world and 2,089th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -16.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
