The Rogue Nation of Zero Machine is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 716 million Zero Machineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Social Policy, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zero Machinean economy, worth 60.7 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 84,823 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, insolent whistleblowers receive their just desserts on deserted isles, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and the nation is currently revamping its entire education system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zero Machine's national animal is the Cat.

Zero Machine is ranked 56,753rd in the world and 59th in Conf of Traditional Socialist Nations for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,682.18 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
