The Confederated Islands of Zanforadon is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Divine King Zan Xeranosis with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 874 million Zanfas are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maunga Tarakona Pa. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zanfara economy, worth 103 trillion Draconics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 117,912 Draconics, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Divine King Zan Xeranosis is a silly poophead, military spending recently hit a new high, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime is totally unknown. Zanforadon's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zanforadon is ranked 23,461st in the world and 1,163rd in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 76.18 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
