The Corner of H-Zhena is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dygonite with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.107 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 medium-sized 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 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zhenan economy, worth a remarkable 1,669 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 273,352 scarabs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. 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 49,221st in the world and 1,741st in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 602.34 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
