The Logical Socialist Democracy of Zess is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Charlie David Hanson with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.623 billion Zessians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital District. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zessian economy, worth 515 trillion exchange tickets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,417 exchange tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Charlie David Hanson's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown. Zess's national animal is the immortal jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Moderatorism.

Zess is ranked 15,308th in the world and 418th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 142,417.18 Standard Monetary Units.
