The Republic of ZX002 is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.177 billion zootians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zoox2. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse ZX002ian economy, worth 488 trillion XXXES 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 Retail, Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. 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 94,276 XXXES, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, children get arrested for floating paper boats on lakes, knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 50,483rd in the world and 80th in Canada for Most Developed, scoring 61.4 on the Human Development Index.
