Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The University of Zeyad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Council of Deans with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.686 billion Students love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Averl-Ala. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scholar economy, worth a remarkable 3,121 trillion Star Dusts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 246,040 Star Dusts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Council of Deans's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, commemoration of the Great New Warsaw Pact War costs almost as much as the war itself, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and the nation is in perpetual campaign mode. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeyad's national animal is the flying penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Zeyad is ranked 23,259th in the world and 74th in New Warsaw Pact for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
