The Federal Republic of Zhaoze is a huge, genial nation, notable for its smutty television, digital currency, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 673 million Citizens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yan. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Imperial economy, worth 40.7 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 60,461 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zhaoze's national animal is the Fer-de-lance, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
