Paradise and Zion

Population497 million

CapitalParadisean City


The Republic of Paradise and Zion is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 497 million Paradise and Zionians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradisean City. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Paradise and Zionian economy, worth 41.2 trillion Nirvanas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,807 Nirvanas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, parents are really careful to pick the right gun for their kids' birthdays, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paradise and Zion's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Paradise and Zion is ranked 16,332nd in the world and 876th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 11.58 bananas ingested per day.
