The 2nd Great State of Zidium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by 10 Year Old Yahya with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, digital currency, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, devout population of 2.377 billion Zidumites 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zidumica DZ. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zidiumian economy, worth 155 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 65,263 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zidium's national animal is the Hudhud, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Zidium is ranked 219,473rd in the world and 7,251st in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13.53 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
