OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Zonom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zonomar with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed population of 14.998 billion 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 concentrates mainly on 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 14%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 1,350th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 380 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
