Nifalembria Zamingstan

Population11.368 billion

CapitalDolphin Bay
LeaderPrime Minister Dietrich


The Federal Republic of Nifalembria Zamingstan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Dietrich with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.368 billion Zamingstanis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dolphin Bay. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Zamingstani economy, worth a remarkable 2,012 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,057 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future leaders of Nifalembria Zamingstan regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nifalembria Zamingstan's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Gaianism.

Nifalembria Zamingstan is ranked 237,571st in the world and 9,203rd in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -9.91 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
