The Republic of Zang0 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Elijah Baley with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 20.788 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, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terminus. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zang0ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,717 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 130,713 zang paralelepípedo reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. 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 25,819th in the world and 739th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 76.96 on the Human Development Index.
