The Socialist Confederation of Zeorus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Isaac Wood with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.514 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, although Industry, Spirituality, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lehen. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Zeorusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,320 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 90,987 Equiliants, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales, the nation is completely gun-free, stray cats threaten the fledgling avian-based internet, and the grizzly bear is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction. 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.
