The Grand Duchy of Zedmania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Maniac with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.557 billion Zedmaniacs enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Law & Order, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zedmania City. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zedmanic economy, worth a remarkable 1,918 trillion leos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 200,696 leos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zedmania's national animal is the sloth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zedmania is ranked 33,997th in the world and 1,127th in the Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 90.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
