The Republic of Zang0 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Elijah Baley with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 22.819 billion Zang0ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terminus. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Zang0ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,974 trillion zang paralelepípedo reais a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,345 zang paralelepípedo reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 231,076th in the world and 7,776th in The East Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
