The Snow Kingdom of Zonapia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.582 billion Zonapians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Presnop. The average income tax rate is 87.9%.
The strong Zonapian economy, worth 106 trillion Zapps a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 67,200 Zapps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, the Federal Council of Zonapia has been announced as the new Head of State, and volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Zonapia has found 1 easter egg). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zonapia's national animal is the Tree Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
