The Emirate of Zidium is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The compassionate, devout population of 298 million Zidumites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zidumica DZ. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Zidiumian economy, worth 20.2 trillion Zidirhams 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 Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 67,639 Zidirhams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government considers the rising number of McRonald's fast food restaurants to be great progress, Zidumites incessantly needle their doctors for relief, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and stews often contain used tissues and pocket fluff. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zidium's national animal is the Hudhud, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zidium is ranked 68,851st in the world and 2,163rd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 59.1 on the Human Development Index.
