The Unitary State of Zimmerdachen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Glorious Sun Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.096 billion Zimmerdens are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haben. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zimmerdachian economy, worth a remarkable 3,909 trillion Rauns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 352,371 Rauns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,068,291 per year while the poor average 90,381, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, immigrants are told to pull themselves up by their worn-out budget bootstraps, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, and people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zimmerdachen's national animal is the Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zimmerdachen is ranked 3,689th in the world and 126th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 9,127.01 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
