The Dreamers of Zonzibar is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.481 billion Zonzibarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zonzibar City. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Zonzibarian economy, worth 402 trillion bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 42,424 bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Innocent defendants often plea guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and children are regularly married to each other to secure business deals between families. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zonzibar's national animal is the great zane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
