The 𝐀𝐛𝐲𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐚 of Zanbala PRZ is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Menelik II with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.068 billion Ethiopians 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Addis Ababa. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zavalan economy, worth 30.7 trillion silver bullion coins 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 10,020 silver bullion coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, Zanbala PRZ has designated Addis Ababa as its capital city, Menelik II has just been declared ruler of Zanbala PRZ in an international press conference, and Ethiopian Orthodoxy has been named as Zanbala PRZ's national religion. 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 of Judah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ethiopian Orthodoxy.

Zanbala PRZ is ranked 49,774th in the world and 7th in The Roleplay Chessboard for Safest, scoring 100.79 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
