The Holy Cheesecloth of H-Zhena is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dygonite with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.583 billion H-Zhenans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shu'ulathoi. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient H-Zhenan economy, worth a remarkable 2,566 trillion scarabs 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 267,858 scarabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

H-Zhena is ranked 279,579th in the world and 4,839th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 2.05 prayers per hour.
