The BMW of Z3 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.224 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 37.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Z3ian economy, worth a remarkable 4,434 trillion Z3s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 219,260 Z3s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, umbrellas are back in fashion, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, and students everywhere have been despairing after the recent ban on video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Z3's national animal is the Z3, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Z3 is ranked 129,603rd in the world and 3rd in Cars for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.67 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
