The Corner of H-Zhena is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dygonite with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.274 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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Zhenan economy, worth a remarkable 1,348 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 255,698 scarabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Dygonite performing the Full-Monty are selling out, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. 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 53,711th in the world and 2,951st in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.68 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
