The Unitary State of Zimmerdachen is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Glorious Sun Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.45 billion Zimmerdens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haben. The average income tax rate is 7.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zimmerdachian economy, worth a remarkable 2,438 trillion Rauns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 288,606 Rauns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, and people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zimmerdachen's national animal is the Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zimmerdachen is ranked 60,981st in the world and 2,503rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,898.41 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
