The Empire of ZhangKeyesland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Justin Zhang with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.904 billion Zhangkeyeslandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ZhangKeyesland City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.6%.

The frighteningly efficient ZhangKeyeslandian economy, worth 392 trillion kek nabs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 206,330 kek nabs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 654,195 per year while the poor average 49,615, a ratio of 13.2 to 1.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime is totally unknown. ZhangKeyesland's national animal is the dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

ZhangKeyesland is ranked 166,444th in the world and 9,310th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -10 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
