The United States of Zess is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 50 million Zessians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 13.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Zessian economy, worth 2.28 trillion exchange tickets a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,579 exchange tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on lawyers' fees trying to get Leader off a murder charge, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and cars are banned. Crime is almost non-existent. Zess's national animal is the hollow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zess is ranked 135,839th in the world and 5,846th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -4 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
