The State of ZBI is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 12.553 billion ZBIians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The strong ZBIian economy, worth 760 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 60,615 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 390,672 per year while the poor average 3,799, a ratio of 102 to 1.

The government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Westminster to enjoy their national art, and the ZBIian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. ZBI's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

ZBI is ranked 79,264th in the world and 1st in United Kingdom of Scotland for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 89.72 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
