Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The University of Zeyad is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Council of Deans with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.711 billion Students enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Averl-Ala. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scholar economy, worth a remarkable 2,854 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 243,727 Star Dusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The death penalty has been reintroduced, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, protests are legal but strictly supervised, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime is totally unknown. 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 9,795th in the world and 30th in New Warsaw Pact for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,353.66 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
