The Empire of Zacisnia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its closed borders, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The devout population of 449 million Zacisnians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Zacisnian economy, worth 12.2 trillion Zacnins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,108 Zacnins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, glamping Zacisnians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zacisnia's national animal is the Blue Footed Boobie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zacisnia is ranked 66,011th in the world and 3,500th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,329.64 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
