The Kingdom of Zigot is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Eegon V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 3.143 billion Zigotians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anemore. The average income tax rate is 34.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Zigotian economy, worth 133 trillion denieroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 42,592 denieroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens often ask "what has information technology ever done for us?", Zigotian soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zigot's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aztec mythology.

Zigot is ranked 21,136th in the world and 47th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 38.93 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
