Zapatian Workers State

Population1.216 billion

LeaderGeneral-Secretary Marcus Vespasian


The Industrial Welfare State of Zapatian Workers State is a massive, safe nation, ruled by General-Secretary Marcus Vespasian with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 1.216 billion Zapatians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flavius. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Zapatian economy, worth 51.6 trillion Flavians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 42,448 Flavians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, there's a bright dawn ahead for Zapatian Workers State, and the Federal Council of Zapatian Workers State has been announced as the new Head of State. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zapatian Workers State's national animal is the raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zapatian Workers State is ranked 173,096th in the world and 6,046th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -10.58 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
