The Corporate Republic of Zenaguria is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 647 million Zenagurians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Zenagurian economy, worth 86.2 trillion C Credits 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. 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 impressive 133,299 C Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 713,419 per year while the poor average 13,042, a ratio of 54.7 to 1.

Children as young as eight can be found working in factories, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, smoking is banned in public areas, and Central spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Zenaguria's national animal is the Manjuu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zenaguria is ranked 65,492nd in the world and 3,349th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,074.47 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
