The Zuper Zealous Zoologist of Zany Zanes is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Zenthos with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-working, cynical population of 9.01 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, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pop. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zany Zanesian economy, worth 516 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 Retail, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 57,321 Z's, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, Zenthos is called 'Patches' at international summits, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark. 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 235,207th in the world and 71st in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -12 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
