The Democratic Free States of New Zenonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Luca D Schnutz with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.771 billion New Zenonians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zenopolis. The average income tax rate is 9.3%.

The frighteningly efficient New Zenonian economy, worth 270 trillion Z-bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 152,868 Z-bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the national symbol of New Zenonia is now always featured on a skewer, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and customers who are not the epitome of politeness always find themselves at the back of the queue. Crime is relatively low. New Zenonia's national animal is the bearded seal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anything.

New Zenonia is ranked 99,601st in the world and 4,491st in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 8.63 crimes per hour.
