Zenthen Isles

Population2.269 billion

CapitalIuggal Seyk


The Colony of Zenthen Isles is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.269 billion Zenthians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iuggal Seyk. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zenthen Islesian economy, worth 109 trillion cashmoneys a year, is highly specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,307 cashmoneys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zenthen Isles's national animal is the Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zenthen Isles is ranked 188,781st in the world and 68th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Armed, with 0.23 Weapons Per Person.
