The Federal Republic of Zigarusstan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Varg Vikerenes with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 1.51 billion Sufiiyts enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunkelheit. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sufiiyt economy, worth 199 trillion rubbles a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,995 rubbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Varg Vikerenes to meetings with foreign heads of state, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zigarusstan's national animal is the Red Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zigarusstan is ranked 26,586th in the world and 1,284th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 80 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
