The People's Republic of Zankioa is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.752 billion Zankioans 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zankio. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zankioan economy, worth 604 trillion Fenexes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,165 Fenexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Zankioa Blood Tithe, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime is totally unknown. Zankioa's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zankioa is ranked 108,815th in the world and 5,969th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 227.99 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
