The Republic of Zilania is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Andrej Zlogacenko with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.148 billion Zilanians 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sares. The average income tax rate is 22.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Zilanian economy, worth 99.9 trillion Groclons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,509 Groclons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, and people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zilania's national animal is the blue wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Secularism.

Zilania is ranked 175,324th in the world and 185th in Oneid for Most Beautiful Environments, with 460.71 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
