The Free Union of Zeklandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Zeklandia the Great with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.663 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, 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeklandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,107 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 166,530 National Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Seklanden" t-shirts, Zeklandia the Great is famed for giving great back rubs, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark. 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 293,216th in the world and 1,012th in 10000 Islands for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -20.15 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
