The frighteningly efficient Zarnicovia novan economy, worth 618 trillion zarnicovs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,615 zarnicovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only persecuted professionals need apply, surveillance cameras are banned, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarnicovia nova's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is zarnicovianism christian.
