The 2nd Great State of Zidium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by 10 Year Old Yahya with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The compassionate, devout population of 2.071 billion Zidumites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zidumica DZ. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Zidiumian economy, worth 127 trillion Pounds 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 Retail, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 61,542 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, tightly packed choir-boys sing the god-given joys of heterosexuality on public transport, 10 Year Old Yahya signs the laws but abides by none of them, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zidium's national animal is the Hudhud, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Zidium is ranked 206,561st in the world and 7,149th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
