The Theocratic Oligarchy of Zonduria is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.466 billion Zondurians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazkerk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zondurian economy, worth 270 trillion Zondurs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 184,660 Zondurs, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, and the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zonduria's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Zimshiani.

Zonduria is ranked 141,856th in the world and 4,152nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 15.04 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
