The Disastrous Planes of ZOCOM is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.523 billion Minion Hoarde are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dark Tower. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong a Minion economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 trillion Gold peices a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,837 Gold peices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ZOCOM's national animal is the Golem, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ZOCOM is ranked 12,598th in the world and 3rd in The Great Chili for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 1 Valid Endorsements.
