Saint Ziana

Population434 million

CapitalXersota van Ziana


The Free Land of Saint Ziana is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 434 million Saint Zianans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xersota van Ziana. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Saint Zianan economy, worth 13.9 trillion lire a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,094 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Saint Zianan grocery store, hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, and foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Ziana's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saint Ziana is ranked 264,569th in the world and 11,470th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
