The Borderlands of Zincoslavia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 232 million Zincoslavians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 13.9%.

The very strong Zincoslavian economy, worth 18.0 trillion Cranks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,576 Cranks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer Cranks to support "struggling" industries, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Zincoslavia City Lynxes' triumph against long odds, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zincoslavia's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zincoslavia is ranked 188,768th in the world and 9,231st in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 27.83 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
