The 99-Percent Biodegradable Zs of Zizocia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 710 million Zizocs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zimbrozarte. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Zizocian economy, worth 23.2 trillion Zizizizizzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 32,652 Zizizizizzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, workers have seized control of the economy, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zizocia's national animal is the Zizzy Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zizocia is ranked 248,551st in the world and 5th in A Serene Pocket for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 34,778 Standard Monetary Units.
