OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Empire of Zeniz is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Krahs with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.551 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcharodon. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Tourism.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, Zeniz has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeniz's national animal is the Great White Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the zenizty.

Zeniz is ranked 1st in California and 172nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 27 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
