Zanbala PRZ

Population788 million


The République du Zaïre of Zanbala PRZ is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 788 million Zanbalans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zanbala PRZian economy, worth 5.88 trillion Zaïres 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 7,456 Zaïres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zanbala PRZ's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zanbala PRZ is ranked 120,430th in the world and 132nd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 432.3 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
