The Free Kingdom of Zannania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Marcel with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 11.299 billion Zannanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ambergrove. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zannanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,167 trillion Sunbursts a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,308 Sunbursts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Treason is relative, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zannania's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zannania is ranked 67,176th in the world and 8th in The Conservative Coalition for Most Influential, scoring 273 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
