The Confederacy of Zoomerville is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Scoob with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.151 billion Zoomers 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PogTown. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zoomervillean economy, worth 144 trillion nuggets a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 125,419 nuggets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zoomerville's national animal is the wild paul blart, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zoomerville is ranked 38,272nd in the world and 1,252nd in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 747.43 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
