The Free Land of Zondu is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 5.78 billion Zondiis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zondii economy, worth 527 trillion drachmas 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,327 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some Zondii athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, the government pours millions of drachmas into rehabilitation programs annually, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and weather reports simply advise Zondiis to 'look outside'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zondu's national animal is the black-footed cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zondu is ranked 23,633rd in the world and 1,253rd in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 66,438.46 Standard Monetary Units.
