The Republic of Zang0 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Elijah Baley with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 18.338 billion Zang0ians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terminus. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zang0ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,379 trillion zang paralelepípedo reais a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,749 zang paralelepípedo reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zang0's national animal is the jaguatirica, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zang0 is ranked 147,475th in the world and 5,772nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -43.86 on the Hayek Index.
