Zigurats

The Republic of Zigurats is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.674 billion Ziguratsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 42.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ziguratsian economy, worth 199 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 119,379 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, television executives are interested in turning Leader's zany home life into a sitcom, and the nation is currently revamping its entire education system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zigurats's national animal is the gray wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zigurats is ranked 25,149th in the world and 948th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 109.95 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
