The Republic of ZX002 is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.116 billion zootians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, with Law & Order, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zoox2. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming ZX002ian economy, worth 636 trillion XXXES a year, is dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,102 XXXES, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The term "Native Zootian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, people can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks, citizens select which government department gets their income tax XXXES each year, and flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ZX002's national animal is the devibodeez, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ZX002 is ranked 49,770th in the world and 72nd in Canada for Longest Average Lifespans, with 78.01 Years.
