OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Zonom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zonomar with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 15.611 billion Zonomians 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, 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 15%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

There is a dearth of space for new houses, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, and travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies. 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 2,922nd in Balder and 111,974th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -89 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
