The People's Democracy of Zebulor is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by party political machines with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.615 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crimson Citadel. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zebulorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,357 trillion Zebulorian Forints a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,954 Zebulorian Forints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government snoops on private internet connections, birth rates have hit an all-time low, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. 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 72nd in Union of Free Nations and 102,928th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -3 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
