Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Zeniz is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Krahs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.575 billion Zenizians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcharodon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zenizian economy, worth an astonishing 10,469 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 Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 444,072 zenizties, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,222,578 per year while the poor average 49,832, a ratio of 44.6 to 1.

Tantrum-throwing toddlers are regularly imprisoned on assault charges, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, and children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, 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 123,972nd in the world and 325th in Yggdrasil for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 834.83 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
