Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Democracy of Zebulor is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by party political machines with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15.776 billion Zebulorians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crimson Citadel. The average income tax rate is 63.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zebulorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,442 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 154,833 Zebulorian Forints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, voting is voluntary, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. 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 76th in Union of Free Nations and 122,711th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -412 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
