The Imperial Republic of Zamastan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Foley Sakzi with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.092 billion Zamastanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tofino. The average income tax rate is 66.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Zamastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,618 trillion ziapets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 265,608 ziapets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

An aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zamastan's national animal is the orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Church of Zian.

Zamastan is ranked 27,846th in the world and 6th in Coalition of Crown Albatross for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,568.14 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
