The People's Democracy of Zebulor is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by party political machines with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 15.016 billion Zebulorians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crimson Citadel. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Zebulor has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and families are only permitted to have one child. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the Zebulorian Forint.

Zebulor is ranked 72nd in Union of Free Nations and 103,664th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14 on the Hayek Index.
