The People's Democracy of Zebulor is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by party political machines with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 15.243 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crimson Citadel. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The world outside is only known of in folklore, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and the government is spending billions of taxpayer Zebulorian Forints to support the Information Technology industry. 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 75th in Union of Free Nations and 116,583rd in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -17 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
