The Republic of Zippo is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 17.94 billion Zippoans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zippoan economy, worth 652 trillion Zoxes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,385 Zoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, voting is compulsory, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zippo's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zippo is ranked 214,141st in the world and 10th in Atheist Empire for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
