LeaderSarvesh Blaze


The Empire of Zeno-sama is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sarvesh Blaze with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.371 billion Zeno-samen are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highbourne. The average income tax rate is 77.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeno-saman economy, worth 456 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 192,472 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeno-sama's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Blazeium.

Zeno-sama is ranked 158,852nd in the world and 8,567th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -144.26 on the Hayek Index.
