The Federal Republic of Zingar is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 303 million Zingar hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The strong Zingar economy, worth 16.9 trillion Zin-coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 55,839 Zin-coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Zingar's national animal is the Man-eating Terrestrial Cephalopod.

Zingar is ranked 126,778th in the world and 82nd in The League of Conservative Voices for Most Developed, scoring 55.39 on the Human Development Index.
