The Floating Island of Zimbada is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by El Jefe with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 24.737 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and the government pours millions of Pelts into rehabilitation programs annually. 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 122,615th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -39 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
