The Corner of H-Zhena is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Dygonite with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.73 billion Zhenans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shu'ulathoi. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zhenan economy, worth a remarkable 1,759 trillion scarabs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 261,477 scarabs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

All footpaths have tollbooths, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. H-Zhena's national animal is the honey badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

H-Zhena is ranked 1,287th in the world and 37th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,772.8 Tourists Per Hour.
