The Arctic Inhabitant of Zizou is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Zizou with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.99 billion Zizouans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antarctica. The average income tax rate is 41.7%.

The Zizouan economy, worth 211 trillion pineappleses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 42,450 pineappleses, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zizou's national animal is the penguino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Zizou is ranked 228,961st in the world and 284th in The Black Hawks for Best Weather, with 55 Meters Of Sunlight.
