The Disastrous Planes of ZOCOM is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Overlord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.528 billion Minion Hoarde 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 enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dark Tower. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong a Minion economy, worth a remarkable 1,455 trillion Gold peices a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,151 Gold peices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, every workday begins with group therapy, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and there's never enough space in space. 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 225,148th in the world and 13th in The Great Chili for Least Corrupt Governments, with 70.41 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
