Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Socialist Confederation of Zeorus is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Isaac Wood with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.656 billion Zeorusians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — is primarily concerned with Education, with Spirituality, Welfare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lehen. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zeorusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,609 trillion Equiliants a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 91,184 Equiliants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Zeorus's radio stations, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and the nation is known as the cheapskates of Equilism. Crime is totally unknown. Zeorus's national animal is the grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zeorusian Orthodoxy.

Zeorus is ranked 117,856th in the world and 61st in Equilism for Most Authoritarian, with 0.11 Stalins.
