The Confederacy of Zolehen is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 9.068 billion Zolehenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zolehenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,650 trillion Kroner 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 292,256 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, and foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zolehen's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zolehen is ranked 60,733rd in the world and 1,592nd in the Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 87.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
