The Democratic Socialist States of Zhukovian is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Premier Jean-Baptiste Baillairgé with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 9.298 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, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zhukovia. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zhukovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,586 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 170,609 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. 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 7,446th in the world and 3rd in The Allied Republic for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.58 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
