The People's Democracy of Zebulor is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by party political machines with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 14.54 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 Defence. 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.

Terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. 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 62nd in Union of Free Nations and 99,027th in the world for Most Average, scoring 335 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
