The Corner of H-Zhena is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dygonite with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.576 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shu'ulathoi. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zhenan economy, worth a remarkable 2,007 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 264,984 scarabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the government loves seeing the little people fight, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

H-Zhena is ranked 121,252nd in the world and 4,260th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 887.66 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
