The Republic of Zang0 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Elijah Baley with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 25.14 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, 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 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zang0ian economy, worth a remarkable 3,254 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 129,474 zang paralelepípedo reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, and incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables. 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 208,444th in the world and 7,663rd in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,022.87 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
