The Ngwaziate of Ziwana is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.833 billion Ziwanis live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birnin-Likulu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The very strong Ziwanan economy, worth 328 trillion Silivas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is 48,073 Silivas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 206,957 per year while the poor average 7,127, a ratio of 29.0 to 1.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, skateparks can be found in every city, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ziwana's national animal is the Mbera Lio n, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Ziwana is ranked 228,336th in the world and 22nd in Mandalanusa for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 27.02 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
