Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Corporate Dictatorship of Zedikistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Executive Zed with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.096 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 97.5%.

The strong Zedikistani economy, worth 300 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, 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 96,903 Gilt Frogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular. 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 3,245th in Balder and 118,373rd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -688.162 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
