Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Democracy of Zebulor is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by First Consul with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.867 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 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 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zebulorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,972 trillion Zebulorian Forints a year, is quite specialized and led 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 166,345 Zebulorian Forints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Zebulor in search of mindworms, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. 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 116th in Union of Free Nations and 141,836th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -167 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
