The Confederacy of Zenstaat is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Confederate Counsel with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.871 billion Zenstaatians 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, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zendorf. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zenstaatian economy, worth 796 trillion Gülders a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 205,644 Gülders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,152,230 per year while the poor average 18,211, a ratio of 63.3 to 1.

The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime is a problem. Zenstaat's national animal is the Bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zenstaat is ranked 272nd in the world and 2nd in The Hole To Hide In for Rudest Citizens, with 531.45 Insults Per Minute.
