Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Corporate Dictatorship of Zedikistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chief Executive Zed with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.675 billion Zedikistani are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mammon Arcology. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The strong Zedikistani economy, worth 256 trillion Gilt Frogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 95,739 Gilt Frogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zedikistan's national animal is the Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mammon's Law.

Zedikistan is ranked 23rd in The Rolpian League and 135,952nd in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -3 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
