The Free Union of Zeklandia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zeklandia the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.251 billion Zeklandren enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seklanden. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeklandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,163 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 163,277 National Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, the nation's athletes must all cross the finish line together while holding hands, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and graffiti graces every city's streets. 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 1,833rd in the world and 33rd in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,474.03 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
