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 remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.366 billion Zedikistani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 96.5%.

The very strong Zedikistani economy, worth 375 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, Gambling, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 111,560 Gilt Frogs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, oracles predict landslide victories for Chief Executive Zed for the next 50 years, military spending is on the increase, and 90% of active duty ZAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. 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 22nd in The United Circle and 127,575th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 4 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
