The Free Union of Zeklandia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Zeklandia the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.843 billion Zeklandren are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seklanden. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeklandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,584 trillion National Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 160,970 National Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Zeklandia has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeklandia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zeklandia is ranked 310th in the world and 9th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 16,492.34 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
