The Elysian Fields of ZOO288 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fox skull family with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory vegetarianism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.074 billion Foxes 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Foxford. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient ZOO288ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,532 trillion Black Fox coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 301,958 Black Fox coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, new "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties. Crime is totally unknown. ZOO288's national animal is the Fennec Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is teumessian fox.
