The Radical Environmentalists of Zmon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Tree Of Eternal Wisdom with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.512 billion Zmonis 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 concentrates mainly on the Environment, although Education and Social Equality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jungle Grove. 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.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, and crime has increased substantially since the police concentrated all their efforts on arresting the rich for loitering in their own homes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zmon's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Gaian Ecologism, and its currency is the Butterfly Wing.

Zmon is ranked 49th in Social Liberal Union and 12,896th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 71 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
