Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Radical Environmentalists of Zmon is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Tree Of Eternal Wisdom with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 9.554 billion Zmonis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 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 465 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 large, well-organized, 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 48,714 Butterfly Wings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and Zmonis have replaced bears in a popular idiom. 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 4,064th in the world and 3rd in Island of Atlas for Largest Black Market, with 127 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
