Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Radical Environmentalists of Zmon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Tree Of Eternal Wisdom with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.821 billion Zmonis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 399 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 45,291 Butterfly Wings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, prudishness is on the way out, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. 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 174,179th in the world and 4,862nd in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 7.94 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
