The Holy Empire of Zeniz is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Krahs with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.253 billion Zenizians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcharodon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zenizian economy, worth a remarkable 8,724 trillion zenizties a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 430,771 zenizties, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,628,171 per year while the poor average 79,296, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

Seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', suicide victims often leave behind cash to cover the cost of their fines, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zeniz's national animal is the Great White Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zeniz is ranked 30th in California and 115,011th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -707 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
