The Communist Ministries of The Zorgonny Wasteland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jordan E House with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.543 billion zorgonnyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redding. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient zorgonnyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,654 trillion Melds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 211,597 Melds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Redding Natural History Museum, worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Zorgonny Wasteland's national animal is the Black-tailed kangaroo yinget ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Salvation Church.

The Zorgonny Wasteland is ranked 167,867th in the world and 94th in USSR for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -26.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
