The Democratic Socialist States of Zhukovian is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Premier Jean-Baptiste Baillairgé with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and national health service. The compassionate, devout population of 7.073 billion Zhukovs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zhukovia. The average income tax rate is 79.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Zhukovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,176 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,299 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Fat-shaming is now public policy, the newest shade developed by Zhukovian's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and the nation is currently revamping its entire education system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zhukovian's national animal is the Zhukovian Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Zhukovian is ranked 129,954th in the world and 9th in Cobalt Network for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 53.49 Workforce Participation Rate.
