The Confederacy of Anzoa is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 589 million Anzoaens are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pintalon. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Anzoan economy, worth 36.4 trillion Hours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 61,773 Hours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

"It was only a joke" is no longer a defense for the felony of discrimination, vaccinations are mandatory, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anzoa's national animal is the Fennec Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Anzoa is ranked 35,744th in the world and 465th in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.27 law-abiding acts per hour.
