The Terrible Influence of Zazumo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by A corrupt leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.402 billion Nerds have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parts Unknown. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nerd economy, worth a remarkable 1,832 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,717 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code. Crime is totally unknown. Zazumo's national animal is the Doggo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nachos.

Zazumo is ranked 219,315th in the world and 12,541st in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.46 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
