The Democratic Union of Zandovia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Crimson Vacktswit with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.116 billion Zandovians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riyadh. The average income tax rate is 71.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Zandovian economy, worth 569 trillion Zandovian Riyals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 182,748 Zandovian Riyals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Zandovians any less frightened, Zandovian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, and people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zandovia's national animal is the Camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Baptism.

Zandovia is ranked 170,908th in the world and 26th in Future Earth for Most Inclusive, scoring 8.87 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
