Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Radical Environmentalists of Zmon is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Tree Of Eternal Wisdom with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate population of 9.333 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 513 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 55,017 Butterfly Wings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, in a baffling press conference The Tree Of Eternal Wisdom proudly dismantled a broken door, the nation is known as the cheapskates of Island of Atlas, and party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises. 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 393rd in the world and 3rd in Island of Atlas for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,906.38 Tourists Per Hour.
