The Holy Empire of Zanga is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The cynical, devout population of 620 million Zanganis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ilazan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.1%.

The all-consuming Zangani economy, worth 72.9 trillion zettabytes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,609 zettabytes, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and nose plugs are the latest Zangani fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zanga's national animal is the zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zanga is ranked 238,703rd in the world and 153rd in Force for Most Secular, with 5.05 Atheism Rate.
