The Sultanate of Zwibelarusia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 359 million Zwibelarusians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nikita Khrushchev. The average income tax rate is 67.6%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Zwibelarusian economy, worth 11.3 trillion Trotskies 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 31,574 Trotskies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, vote-counting is replacing kitchen patrol as the least glamorous army work, and city-dwellers are forcibly moved to farming communes in the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zwibelarusia's national animal is the Tarrasque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zwibelarusia is ranked 10,605th in the world and 26th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8,192.33 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
