The Democratic Union of Zalidia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Welek Yretun with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed population of 2.012 billion Zalidians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Watania. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zalidian economy, worth 272 trillion Zalids a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,440 Zalids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, and the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zalidia's national animal is the Killer Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Novitomnism.

Zalidia is ranked 160,251st in the world and 222nd in Karma for Most Avoided, scoring 0.77 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
