The Floating Island of Zimbada is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by El Jefe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.636 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.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. 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 1st in Conflation and 5th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 69 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
