The Disputed Territories of FH Za is a massive, safe nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.009 billion FH Zans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.4%.

The frighteningly efficient FH Zan economy, worth 101 trillion Szchequinns a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,225 Szchequinns, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Beggars on the street are often heard asking for spare votes, elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", and there's a revolutionary culture in the nation's dairies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FH Za's national animal is the Dugong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

FH Za is ranked 98,001st in the world and 202nd in Nihon for Lowest Crime Rates, with 63.39 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
