The Protectorate of Zigamorph is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by He with wobbly chin with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 38.285 billion Zigamorphians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ThunderDome. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Zigamorphian economy, worth a remarkable 7,161 trillion boiled eggs 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 187,070 boiled eggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, humble workers tempt fate for a taste of airline caviar, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zigamorph's national animal is the One legged Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zigamorph is ranked 2,942nd in the world and 123rd in Osiris for Highest Poor Incomes, with 177,659.92 Standard Monetary Units.
