Zinatus Havionia

The Dictatorship of Zinatus Havionia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 990 million Zinatus Havionians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Zinatus Havionian economy, worth 17.3 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 17,428 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, workers have seized control of the economy, and the sick and dying are locked in their homes with a red "X" painted on the front door. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zinatus Havionia's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zinatus Havionia is ranked 148,247th in the world and 331st in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.99 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
