The Democratic Republic of Zosnor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by JasonRahl with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.874 billion Zosnorians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tar Valon. The average income tax rate is 53.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zosnorian economy, worth 399 trillion Zos a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,027 Zos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

War vets look after war animals, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, among slaves 'bastard' is an honorific rather than an insult, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zosnor's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zosnor is ranked 158,015th in the world and 5,824th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -3.24 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
