Zaporizhian Host

The Nomadic Peoples of Zaporizhian Host is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hetman-bot X3 with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.912 billion Cossacks are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Public Transport, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mirov. The average income tax rate is 50.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Zaporizhian Hostian economy, worth 115 trillion Horses 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 39,497 Horses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, the government has outlawed extremist parties, female smokers cut their hair and don suits to get into male-only clubs, and getting a haircut is a punishable offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zaporizhian Host's national animal is the Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Post-Post-Atheism.

Zaporizhian Host is ranked 84,974th in the world and 3,784th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,309.49 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
