OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Empire of Zeniz is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Krahs with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.847 billion Zenizians 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.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and private law firms are unheard of. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Zeniz's national animal is the Great White Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the zenizty.

Zeniz is ranked 1st in California and 102nd in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 32 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
