OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Zonom is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zonomar with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 16.335 billion Zonomians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Education and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zonom City. The average income tax rate is 18%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zonom's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the isk.

Zonom is ranked 29th in Balder and 951st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 406 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
