The Zombie Apocalypse Horror of World War Z is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Max Brooks with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.224 billion Zombies are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dachang. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient World War Zian economy, worth an astonishing 10,910 trillion Solanums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 416,034 Solanums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,454,670 per year while the poor average 86,472, a ratio of 16.8 to 1.

Children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. World War Z's national animal is the Quisling, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Apocalypse Cult.

World War Z is ranked 16,635th in the world and 363rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 7,565.29 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
