The BMW of Z3 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.032 billion Z3ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Z3ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,864 trillion Z3s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,646 Z3s, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Z3's national animal is the Z3, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Z3 is ranked 4,384th in the world and 1st in Cars for Largest Black Market, with 513 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
