The People's Republic of Zakanda is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Declan Webster with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.221 billion Zakandans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asina. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zakandan economy, worth a remarkable 7,512 trillion pounds 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 Tourism, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 248,588 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zakanda's national animal is the ocelot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zakanda is ranked 237,020th in the world and 737th in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -15.43 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
