The Floating Island of Zimbada is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by El Jefe with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.721 billion Zimbadans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zimbada's national animal is the Wyrm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Pelt.

Zimbada is ranked 4th in Conflation and 114,505th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -160 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
