Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Zeniz is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Krahs with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, national health service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 25.21 billion Zenizians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcharodon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zenizian economy, worth an astonishing 11,312 trillion zenizties a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 448,712 zenizties, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,819,324 per year while the poor average 73,669, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Religious terrorism is considered to be an Act of God by insurance companies, a three-year-old has been selected to run the civil service, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zeniz's national animal is the Great White Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zeniz is ranked 151,140th in the world and 292nd in Yggdrasil for Most Devout, with 2.46 Prayers Per Hour.
