Zenthen Isles

Population575 million



The Colony of Zenthen Isles is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 575 million Zenthians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arthes. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Zenthen Islesian economy, worth 27.6 trillion cashmoneys a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,977 cashmoneys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and the old neighbourhood isn't how most Zenthians remember it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zenthen Isles's national animal is the Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zenthen Isles is ranked 6,391st in the world and 91st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.83 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
