The Confederacy of Zolehen is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 7.835 billion Zolehenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zolehenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,110 trillion Kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 269,308 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zolehen's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zolehen is ranked 1,086th in the world and 29th in the Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 99.53 Effective Tax Rate.
