The Federal Socialist Republic of Ziotah and Riverside is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Prime Minister with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.003 billion Ziotans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindon. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ziotan economy, worth 964 trillion Zios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 137,684 Zios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Ziotah and Riverside will pay them to stop, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziotah and Riverside's national animal is the Mountain Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ziotah and Riverside is ranked 3,230th in the world and 49th in Forest for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 44 Valid Endorsements.
