The Zuper Zealous Zoologist of Zany Zanes is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Zenthos with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.091 billion Zany Zanesians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pop. The average income tax rate is 44.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Zany Zanesian economy, worth 274 trillion Z's a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 45,093 Z's, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zany Zanes's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zen.

Zany Zanes is ranked 70,229th in the world and 40th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Largest Black Market, with 1.25 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
