Zenthen Isles

Population2.895 billion

CapitalIuggal Seyk


The Colony of Zenthen Isles is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.895 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, liberal, 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 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zenthen Islesian economy, worth 138 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 47,845 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 13,053rd in the world and 85th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,222.44 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
