The Free People's Dem Republic of New Zajtahn is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Our Glorious President Regina Rascal with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.102 billion Zajtahnians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Zajtahn City. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zajtahnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,059 trillion NZ dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 173,695 NZ dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending recently hit a new high, politicians look weirdly alike, immigrants who don't like the taste of Zajtahnian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Zajtahn's national animal is the golden vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Zajtahnian Orderly Orthodoxy.

New Zajtahn is ranked 8,424th in the world and 1st in Imperium of the Wolf for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,971.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
