Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Radical Environmentalists of Zmon is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Tree Of Eternal Wisdom with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.256 billion Zmonis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jungle Grove. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Zmonish economy, worth 101 trillion Butterfly Wings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 12,269 Butterfly Wings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, the children of Zmon are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zmon's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gaian Ecologism.

Zmon is ranked 197th in Social Liberal Union and 123,685th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
