The Fiefdom of Zzzaaa is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Her Serene Highness Guinivere with a fair hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.307 billion Zzzaaans 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zzzaaa City. The average income tax rate is 12%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Education and welfare spending are on the rise, only adults may purchase violent video games, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Zzzaaa's radio stations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Zzzaaa's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the florin.

Zzzaaa is ranked 49th in The North Pacific and 1,190th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 133 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
