Population8.586 billion



The People's Republic of Zankioa is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.586 billion Zankioans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zankio. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zankioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,032 trillion Fenexes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,226 Fenexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Zankio" t-shirts, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zankioa's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zankioa is ranked 9,187th in the world and 489th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,283.94 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
