Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Democracy of Zebulor is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by First Consul with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 16.909 billion Zebulorians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crimson Citadel. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zebulorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,744 trillion Zebulorian Forints a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,323 Zebulorian Forints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of children one can have is restricted by law, Zebulor-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zebulor's national animal is the mindworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zebulor is ranked 124th in Union of Free Nations and 128,696th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -2,050 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
