The Disastrous Planes of ZOCOM is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Overlord with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.907 billion Minion Hoarde are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dark Tower. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong a Minion economy, worth a remarkable 1,479 trillion Gold peices a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,216 Gold peices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, every workday begins with group therapy, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and there's never enough space in space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ZOCOM's national animal is the Golem, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ZOCOM is ranked 161,359th in the world and 11th in The Great Chili for Rudest Citizens, with 38.8 Insults Per Minute.
