The Floob-Boober-Bab-Boober-Bubs of On Beyond Zebra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Doktor Seuss with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.006 billion On Beyond Zebrans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seussopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient On Beyond Zebran economy, worth a remarkable 2,618 trillion zatzes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 145,398 zatzes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 551,113 per year while the poor average 26,644, a ratio of 20.7 to 1.

Surveillance cameras are banned, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, and the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. On Beyond Zebra's national animal is the yuzz-a-ma-tuzz, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Quandaryism.

On Beyond Zebra is ranked 7,186th in the world and 5th in The Cuckoos Egg for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 56.1 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
